Join experienced bird walk 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. . . .

LAAS bird walks and field trips delve into identification, natural histories and interactions observed in the field. All are welcome on either event, but no pets or small children, please.
