Ballona Creek Renaissance President Jim Lamm will speak tonight at the Culver City Historical Society’ general meeting at the Veterans Memorial Building’s Multi-Purpose Room, 4117 Overland Ave. at 7 p.m.
Lamm will narrate a virtual tour of the creek in his presentation, “Connecting Creek and Community, Ballona Creek and its Watershed---Past, Present and Future,” that will also include his own personal reflections.
Lamm, who has been president of BCR since 1998, teaches ecology at Antioch University-Los Angeles. He co-founded and participates in the Ballona Creek Watershed Task Force and Assembly District 47’s Environmental Cabinet; has served as a Culver City Planning Commissioner; an Historical Society board member; as an elder, deacon, and choir member at St. John’s Presbyterian Church; and with his wife Cathi, was a Peace Corps volunteer in Iran.
All members of the CCHS and the public are welcome to attend the free program. Entrance to the multi-purpose room is through the back of the building near the parking lot, and through the Archive & Resource Center space.
