The Audubon Center at Debs Park is all about the connections between community, the landscape and birds of LA. With its people-focused approach to conservation issues, it plays a central role in the creation of a more diverse community of nature lovers and conservationists in Los Angeles. The 17-acre Center is located within the 282 acre footprint of Deb’s Park, an urban hiking destination with beautiful vistas and natural landscapes. The Center manages the volunteer driven Los Nogales Nursery, which produces native plants for restoration and for donation to the community. Gardens surrounding the headquarters include examples of locally native species, such as sage, walnut and sycamore as well as innovative water features and a demonstration Tongva village. Explore the beautiful landscape surrounding this forward thinking community space.

We at Debs Park have been able to really push back on the conservation movement as a whole, in terms of how we do urban conservation and understanding that we do this work with a number of communities that have different priorities.
