Join us for a special birding workshop presented by local bird enthusiast Herb Lewis.

Herb will share some secrets of creating a magnet for birds in your own backyard.

"Birding in the Backyard - A Gardening Perspective” will include proven techniques of garden design for creating your own backyard bird friendly habitat. The program also includes methods for feeding, providing shelter and housing, and incorporating water features into the garden habitat. His simple ideas and principles have brought 80 bird species to his Huntsville backyard since 2004. He will share personal photos of many birds enjoying his wildlife habitat environment.

In addition, Herb will discuss the Garden’s newly developed Birding Trail that has revealed over 70 species of birds within the past year
