LA River Shorebirding

Get back into the swing of Fall birding in the presence of thousands of migrating shorebirds and other winged critters along the Lower Los Angeles River. We’ll begin at 8:00 AM at DeForest Park, 6255 DeForest Avenue in Long Beach. Meet in the parking lot by the tennis courts, between Poppy St and Harding St. Binoculars are a must and spotting scopes are highly recommended.

For those wishing to carpool, which we strongly encourage, meet at the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Area parking lot at 7:15 AM, where we’ll reduce the number of vehicles and arrive at the river site by 8 AM. We may visit several sites, depending on what has been recently spotted. We’ll plan to leave around 11 AM, returning to the parking lot about noon.

Reservations are not needed. For more information, contact Jim Hardesty at Jim.Hardesty AT
