***UPDATE*** Due to construction in the patio we will meet at the Nest. The Patio entrance to the garden will be close for construction, please use the Tiverton, or South Gate entrances.
During the winter months, the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden (MEMBG) is full of birds. A typical walk around the garden can reveal upwards of twenty species, many of which have migrated from thousands of miles to the north to spend the winter in the garden. By May, most of these species will have left again for their northern breeding grounds. Want to see them while they’re still here? Join the Bruin Naturalists Club and Botanical Garden staff for a guided bird walk on Thursday, March 16th from 8am to 9:30am. We will see warblers, sparrows, hummingbirds, finches, and much more! If we’re lucky, we may even see some passage migrants that have arrived on their spring migration from the south, either to rest in the garden on their way north, or to breed here for the summer.
Due to space constraints, we are limited to 15 participants- so if you’re interested, RSVP to rhedley [at ] ucla.edu as soon as possible.
When: 8 – 9:30am, Thursday, March 16th. Coffee and snacks will be served at 8am at The Patio
Where: The Patio – in the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden
What to bring: Binoculars if you have them, though spare sets will also be available.
