The Bruin Birding Club is the official Audubon student chapter at UCLA. We host weekly campus bird walks, field trips to birding hotspots near and far, and informational events and workshops for the UCLA community. We develop and implement conservation projects that restore habitat for birds on campus. Our mission is to support birds and promote interest in birding at UCLA.

Membership is free to all members of the UCLA community, including students, postdocs, staff, and faculty. We encourage people of all birding experience levels to join.
