In the Garden

Cool winter days during January and February are perfect for getting out of the house and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine in the Garden. Walk the trails in the crisp winter air or play a round of fetch with your dog in the five acre "no leash" zone at the back of the Garden. Check out the extension of the Lewis Birding Trail - don't forget your binoculars. Admission is $1/dog; regular fee for humans.

February 21: Try your hand at being the day’s Top Dog in the Race for Top Dog 5k beginning at 8 am. If you want a little slower pace, you and your pet can join us for the 1 mile Bow Wow Fun Run immediately following the 5k at 9 am.

The Garden is a Birding Hotspot and is included on the North Alabama Birding Trail Map. Visit the Lewis Birding Trail page for a list of bird species sighted at the Garden, a Birding Trail Map, and a photo gallery of birds photographed in the Garden. Grab your binoculars, head out to the Trail and capture a few sightings of your own. Be part of the global Great Backyard Bird Count and enjoy other birding activities.
