L.A. visits the wilds of Africa. Not!


All those cities calling themselves urban jungles simply do not have a clue. They are just pretending. We’ve got the real deal — Tarzan’s jungle! That’s what the Los Angeles County Arboretum is telling us. And on June 30, they are throwing a party steeped in jungle love.

That’s ‘cuz  Baldwin Lake, part of the Arboretum, and the surrounding landscape doubled as deep African jungle in twelve classic Tarzan films. And it’s still there, replete with vines to swing from tree to tree.

To celebrate properly, the all-day activities include a special screening of Tarzan and the Amazon (1945).
