The Bruin Birding Club is the official Audubon student chapter at UCLA. We host weekly campus bird walks, off-campus field trips, and educational events and workshops for the UCLA community. We develop and implement conservation projects that restore habitat for birds on campus, and work to make the birding community more inclusive and accessible. 

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.
