4/16: Rock Pool and Century Lake Trails w/ Christoph Niemann

Start: April 16, 2023 8:30 am

End: April 16, 2023 2:00 pm

Join us on this 5-mile in-and-out trail in Malibu Creek State Park. This hike offers lots of beautiful variety, and it takes about 2 hours to complete. A lovely walk down an oak-shaded lane includes a stunning volcanic rock pool and a picturesque lake. Make sure to take the path down to Century Lake; it is a truly spectacular place to stop for a picnic! We will also be passing the site of the old M.A.S.H television series! This hike is a great opportunity to learn about flora and fauna native to the Los Angeles area, a much better representation than walking around Westwood.

Joining us on this adventure is Dr. Christoph Niemann. Professor Niemann received his diploma (B.A. and M.A.) from the University of Erlangen-Nuernberg, Germany in 1998, and a Ph.D. in physics from the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt, Germany in 2002. He has been a member of UCLA since 2005, working within the Physics and Astronomy Department. His research entails building large and powerful lasers and using them to study hot ionized matter, called plasma, to learn more about explosions in outer space!
