Los Angeles Audubon is a 501( c) 3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to promote the enjoyment and protection of birds and other wildlife through environmental education, conservation and habitat restoration. An important strategic goal is to provide after-school environmental education targeting under-served youth and their communities in the urban core. The bird walks are free - but you can help support our youth education programs and conservation work by becoming a member. We hope that you will become a member and we invite you to participate in our volunteer restoration work and other events that you will find posted on our website.
