Los Angeles Audubon

Western Tanager with words Los Angeles AudubonLos Angeles Audubon recently partnered with California State Parks to serve as the cooperating association in a new urban state park: at the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook of Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area. The association provides education programs, coordinates restoration events and volunteer clean-up days, and undertakes restoration research on behalf of this new state park.

Los Angeles Audubon began in May, 1907, when a small band of bird lovers began to take bird walks in the hills and canyons of Garvanza. Interest grew and numbers increased, and on March 2, 1910, the group formed the organization that became the Los Angeles Audubon Society. Their mission is to promote the enjoyment and protection of birds and other wildlife through recreation, education, conservation and restoration. On the eve of their centennial, they stand re-committed to their mission.

The Los Angeles Audubon is an official cooperating association with California State Parks and a nonprofit, public benefit corporation. For more information about the Los Angeles Audubon’s many activities, or to help support their work, contact:
