"If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need." -Marcus Tullius Cicero

Long Beach is in Los Angeles County but sits next to Orange County. The flora and fauna of the area do not recognize our political boundaries. Most of the photos in this guide are from Long Beach, but some are from these other locations. All of these areas are within a relatively 'short' drive of Long Beach.
