LAAS birdwalks 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. Appropriate for young bird watchers age 6 years and older.

ATTN: Photographers - Kindly keep a distance from the birds, so that all can enjoy viewing them. Aggressive photography will scare off the birds.
