It’s been a busy year for Los Angeles Audubon. We are so grateful to our program chairs for our monthly program at Debs parks, our four monthly bird walks throughout Los Angeles, as well as the special birding workshops (Gull Identification and Bird Photography), and field trips (Anza Borrego, Salton Sea, Carrizo Plain, southern Sierras and Owens Valley). None of these excellent programs/field trips would be possible without your great effort. Additionally, members and students contributed to the Christmas Bird Count, the Great Backyard Bird Count, and the newest event, Bird L.A.

Our exemplary elementary and middle school education programs would not be possible without the many volunteer docents and college interns that led 5,000 students over the past year in meaningful outdoor education activities from central Los Angeles to the Ballona Wetlands. But let us not forget our Los Angeles Audubon staff, keeping all the parts of our education and conservation activities moving.

We are also proud of our community volunteers and student interns for their accomplishments improving open spaces and restoring vital habitat for birds - from the Baldwin Hills to the Pacific Ocean. Over the past 12 months, 469 volunteers have worked 1407 hours to clear 294 30-gal bags of weeds and debris, planting over 3,000 native plants. But we’re not done yet! Our work continues within the parkland of the Baldwin Hills. And we’ve got exciting new plans for a re-imagined schoolyard habitat at Esperanza Elementary School which will be LA Audubon’s second schoolyard habitat project following the success of native habitat that we helped to grow at Leo Politi Elementary School.

As an LA Audubon member, your contribution is so important in helping us to continue our conservation and education work. Los Angeles deserves to have a healthy and thriving environment where birds, wildlife and people can thrive.
