Welcome to the Garden

Lewis Birding Trail

The Garden is not only a great horticultural display for human visitors, it also attracts large numbers and many species of birds.

Watch a short video with a sample of our bird visitors.

Fall Migration in the Garden
Many waterfowl have begun their migration from the cooler climates in Canada and the upper North American states. Monday two migrating ducks, Gadwall and Mallards, were observed in the misting rain at Little Smith Lake. Other migrating ducks will likely arrive over the next two weeks as more cool weather pushes South.  Early mornings are good times to view migrating ducks at the Garden.
