Beaks and Barks
Saturday January 16, 2016 - Monday February 29, 2016
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.
For the birding enthusiasts, you’ll be able to explore the Lewis Birding Trail, included on the North Alabama Birding Trail, and be part of the global Great Back Yard Bird Count February 12–15, 2016. 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.
For the “Barks” part of Beaks & Barks, bring your favorite four-legged friend to the Garden each day to stretch your legs and theirs and play some fetch in our “No Leash Zone”. Your dog can play there off-leash with his pals while you make friends with other pet parents. Then you both can enjoy the Garden while strolling, on-leash, on the pet paths.
Garden membership or admission for humans; $1 per dog or $10 PawPass for the season for your four-legged friends.
