Bird Walks and Field Trips


Please join with others who share your interests in nature, birds and wildlife! We are pleased to present the following recreational, and educational opportunities in and around the Los Angeles area.


Bird Walks

Join experienced leaders who will help you explore the varied habitat in and around the greater Los Angeles Area. Enjoy woodland nature areas, parklands and lakes, natural coastal scrub habitat and saltwater marshes.

Binoculars are provided on many of the walks.

Bird walks are geared for the beginner/intermediate birders looking for an introduction to local birds and/or interested in reducing their carbon footprint by birding relatively close to home.

Both LA Audubon bird walks and field trips delve into identification, natural histories and interactions observed in the field. All are welcome at either event, but no pets or small children, please. Appropriate for young bird watchers age 6 years and older. Bird walks DO NOT require advance sign-up, just show up at the specified meeting time and place.
