INTERPRETING NATURE: Community Birding in the Heart of Los Angeles

INTERPRETING NATURE: Community Birding in the Heart of Los Angeles

Last year, junior staff of Los Angeles Audubon Society applied and received a scientific/research and community based grant by the Palos Verdes/South Bay Audubon Grant Program. Thanks to their generous funding, LA Audubon was able to produce 100 calendars filled with photographs and artwork made by the community including the schools’ principal, students, and their parents/guardians. In this project; staff, Baldwin Hills Greenhouse Program students and ee360 Fellowship interns led the Esperanza Elementary community in bilingual nature walks that bridged research, community engagement and art with non-scientists and non-researchers- a concept of community science.
