Our Mission: To bring the excitement of birds to our community through birding, education and the conservation of bird habitats



April 29 — May 1, 2016

Pasadena Audubon's biggest event raises funds for worthy causes. This year, those causes are the scholarship funds to allow young birders to attend conferences of the Western Field Ornithologists (the Mike San Miguel Memorial Fund), and summer camps at the Audubon Center at Debs Park.

The objective is to count as many different species as possible in L.A. County during Birdathon weekend. Birdathon teams take widely divergent, but very serious, approaches to this event. Here are the teams known at press time:

Polystyrene Ban Update


URGENT! Your help is needed to ban the use of polystyrene (Styrofoam) in Pasadena. The ordinance will be coming before the Municipal Services Committee on April 26th.

Single use polystyrene containers are one of the major sources of marine pollution- a 2011 study found that over 70% of the trash found in the Los Angeles and San Gabriel rivers is polystyrene. When polystyrene breaks down it can have serious impacts on the environment, wildlife, and human health. Over 90 other cities and counties in CA have already banned polystyrene. Affordable, safe alternatives exist.
