Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax Tree in La Jolla

Even if you didn’t know that Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel) had been a La Jolla resident, you might catch yourself thinking, “That __ reminds me of a Dr. Seuss drawing,” as you explore the coastline. Keep a lookout for a tall windblown Monterey Cypress tree as you walk through Ellen Browning Scripps Park – it’s said to have inspired the endangered Truffula Tree species in Dr. Seuss’s book – The Lorax.

After locating the “Lorax Tree” take time to think about this quote taken from the book. The Lorax book is about the importance of protecting the environment. However, the same quote could be said for other matters that are important within your family. Use the opportunity to have a purposeful discussion with your family.
