It was an overcast November morning in Debs Park, 10 years ago and excitement was in the air.  A loud procession led by a mariachi band came up the hill.  In tow, were hundreds of kids carrying artwork representing the animals of Los Angeles and supporters of the movement to connect urban dwellers with nature.  This was the day that the Audubon Center at Debs Park first opened its gates to the community.  Since that day, Audubon has been providing a gathering place for the community to experience, understand, and care for the natural world.  Hundreds of thousands of people have passed through the Audubon Center at Debs Park for a little slice of nature right in the middle of the City.

Here are some reflections of our supporters:

Please join the Audubon Center at Debs Park on Saturday, November 9th, from 1-4 for a community celebration of our work in Los Angeles.  Find out more info about our event here.

    I came to California a few years ago after living in Hawaii. I missed the natural world tremendously and I never would have imagined that a place in Los Angeles would be my nature salvation. I am so grateful to Audubon for connecting me with the Audubon Center, it’s a beautiful escape in the concrete jungle. Thank you for all you do and Happy Anniversary!
