Los Angeles to celebrate its first Bird LA Day on May 2

Environmental non-profits, universities and public companies join Audubon to celebrate LA’s rich environment with a day of events revolving around birds. offers full calendars of events

Los Angeles, Calif. – Los Angeles is one of the most amazing places for birds in California, if not the country. On May 2, Angelenos will celebrate the birds of LA in a unique way – with the first annual Bird LA Day, a series of de-centralized events countywide, all unified through social media.

From Deb’s Park in downtown LA to the Ballona Wetlands in Playa Del Rey, reaching as far south as The Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific and as far north as The San Fernando Valley, there will be events for every level of birder ranging from the uninitiated to the serious and sophisticated.

One key feature is that there’s no cost to participate – not for the organizers, nor the participants. For once, the spotlight will be on LA’s biodiversity, not film or fashion, celebrity or TV. Just good old fashioned outdoor entertainment.
