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.
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 BowWow Fun Run immediately following the 5k at 9 a.m.
The Garden is now 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 Back Yard Bird Count February 13-16; attend “Chickin & Pickin” dinner and movie Friday evening February 13; enjoy a full day Birding Symposium on Saturday February 14; and on Sunday February 15, it’s Young Birders Day with make and takes for the kids.
