LOS ANGELES – The recorded history of Southern California goes back over 500 years. It takes the efforts of hundreds of organizations to uncover, preserve, document and interpret this substantial, complex and significant legacy. On Sunday, April 11, The L.A. Heritage Alliance will host its Third Annual L.A. Heritage Day to share this history through tours of historic structures, a scavenger hunt, presentations, readings, performances and cooking lessons.

“In an area sometimes perceived as having no ‘real’ history, L.A. Heritage Day is an opportunity for people of all ages to learn about and enjoy the fascinating people, places and events that have shaped Southern California,” said Cindy Olnick, spokesperson for the Los Angeles Conservancy. “It is also a chance to learn about the incredible variety of local preservation groups, museums, libraries and historical societies serving today throughout Los Angeles County.”

L.A. Heritage Alliance was formed in 2008 to unify and leverage the efforts of more than 200 organizations in greater Los Angeles dedicated to preserving this area’s long history. Among the participating groups in this year’s L.A. Heritage Day are Claremont Heritage, the Cultural Heritage Foundation of Southern California, Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum, Highland Park Heritage Trust, Hollywood Heritage, Las Angelitas del Pueblo, the Los Angeles Conservancy, Pacific Asia Museum, Pomona Heritage, LAUSD Historical Archives, the Santa Monica Conservancy, the Museum of the San Fernando Valley, and the West Adams Heritage Association. A complete list of participating groups can be found at www.laheritagealliance.org <http://click.icptrack.com/icp/relay.php?r=20445505&msgid=291209&act=2ATA&c=251554&destination=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.laheritagealliance.org%2F> .

The Third Annual L.A. Heritage Day will be held on Sunday, April 11, 2010, at the Heritage Square Museum www.heritagesquare.org 3800 Homer St., Los Angeles, located just off the Pasadena Freeway in northeast Los Angeles. Admission is free for anyone who downloads the flyer from www.heritagesquare.org and $5 without the flyer.
