Bird Walk and Habitat Restoration at Rubio Canyon

Saturday, May 14th, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – Rubio Canyon Nature Preserve

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treaty with a day of birding and habitat restoration.

Join the Pasadena Audubon Society and the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy at Rubio Preserve on May 14th. This is an all ages event (but please, no dogs). There will be a bird walk from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., and then help restore Rubio Canyon’s bird habitat by either removing invasive plants or planting native plants from 9:00 a.m. to noon.

Wear clothes that you are okay getting dirty, sturdy shoes, and a hat. Organizers ask that participants bring a refillable water bottle and sunscreen. Water and light snacks will be provided.

“Whether you’ve been birding for years or just want to learn who is visiting your backyard feeders, we welcome anyone with a love for our feathered friends.”

Rubio Canyon is at Rubio Vista Road in Altadena.
