Meets at Visitor Center

Free with Gardens Admission

Join experienced birding volunteers as they introduce you to bird watching on an approximately 1.5 hour hike through the Meadow Garden in search of our resident and migratory species. This is an easier hike than our other birding programs, and will provide you with some of the basic techniques you need to become an official birder.

Outdoor clothing, good walking shoes/boots and binoculars are recommended. If weather conditions preclude access to the Meadow Garden, the hike will use other available Garden areas.
