UCLA La Kretz Center Director Brad Shaffer and ornithologist extraordinaire Dr. Dan Cooper will lead a spring birding extravaganza for up to four guests. The trip will highlight some of Southern California’s top birding spots on this two (or three) day excursion. We’ll start at UCLA, and bird the San Jacinto Mountains, Salton Sea, Anza-Borrego desert, and coastal marsh and beach habitats. Transportation, meals (prepared by ""renowned chefs Brad and Dan"") including all beverages, and private room accommodation at the beautiful UC Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center are all part of the experience. We’ll target April 2022 during the height of the spring migration to identify, watch and enjoy at least 100 species—Dan Cooper is one of the best birders in the state!
