Brian Young leading restoration

On January 23, Los Angeles Audubon hosted a habitat restoration event in partnership with Ballona Creek Renaissance at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook. More than 65 volunteers comprised of young students, local residents, and business leaders turned out to plant native coastal sagescrub species that will benefit wildlife and improve the overall health of this magnificent urban park. And the view, what a glorious view we had of the surrounding area, with snowcapped mountains framing downtown LA!

65 Restoration Volunteers at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook

Los Angeles Audubon’s ongoing restoration work is led by college and high school interns and many park goers comment that they are inspired seeing the students at work and marvel at the transformation as the native plants take hold across acres of park landscape. In fact, many park goers who regularly workout here, tell us that they want to “give back” and are signing up to be volunteers for future events. The community is embracing stewardship of their park and our students have played an important role in activating that community spirit!

If you, your family, or your work collegues would like to volunteer for a future habitat restoration event, send me an email. It’s really a fantastic way to start your morning.
