Bruin Birding Club Fall Migration Garden Walks

October 31 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Weekly Birding Walks in the Botanical Garden

Thursdays 9/26 – 11/13  •   8 – 9am

Fall is here, and birds across California and the Northern Hemisphere are migrating south. Many rely on greenspaces in urban areas to rest and refuel for the next leg of the journey south. Join the Bruin Birding Club this fall to watch for migrating warblers, flycatchers, tanagers, vireos, thrushes and more each Thursday in the UCLA Botanical Garden. The first walk will be Thursday, 9/26. Everyone from UCLA and the broader community is welcome to join–bring binoculars if you have them. Meet at the La Kretz Garden Pavilion, no RSVP or ticket is required.

The Bruin Birding Club is a group of birders comprised of undergrads and graduate students, postdocs and staff. These walks will be led by Samuel Bressler, a third year master’s student studying the microbiome and nesting patterns of Dark-eyed Juncos, and Andy Kleinhesselink, a postdoc studying community ecology.
