BirdLA Day: Botanical Birding for Citizen Science and Academic Research

May 12, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Held every May, Bird LA Day celebrates the birds of Southern California and LA’s amazing biodiversity. Bird and nature-themed events are held throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Bird LA Day shines the spotlight on nature, and reminds the world that Los Angeles is a lot more than just film, fashion and celebrities.

Join graduate students Andy Kleinhesselink, Samuel Bressler, and the UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden staff for a morning of birding in our 7.5 acre urban oasis in Westwood! We’ll start off at the Nest Outdoor Classroom with coffee and snacks, followed by some demonstrations about how the garden is used for ornithological scientific research and how citizen scientists like you can contribute birding observations with phone-based apps. This event is free, but space is limited, so please RSVP.

The UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). As a promoter of nature at a California land grant institution, we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
