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,” a multifaceted story about people, places, and processes that will include his own personal reflections.

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.
