Alabama Audubon Field Trip: Birmingham Botanical Gardens
March 5 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 pmFree
Pre-registration is required by 12 p.m. CST on Friday, March 4th, and space is limited. For more information and to register, visit alaudubon.org/event/2022-03-05
The Birmingham Botanical Gardens is a lush, sixty-seven-acre park that houses thirty separate garden installations, numerous water features, and a vast array of native plant life, much of which is of interest and benefit to birds. Every day of the year offers the potential for good birding around the gardens, but in March, we’ll be looking for early-arriving spring migrants as well as resident birds.
The details: Meetup is at 8 a.m. at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens entrance gates (2612 Lane Park Rd, Birmingham, AL 35223). As always, remember to bring your binoculars, plenty of water and snacks, insect repellent, rain gear, sunblock, and seasonally appropriate attire.
In the case of inclement weather, the event may be cancelled. You may contact the trip leader the morning of the event if the weather is questionable.
Registration: To register, visit alaudubon.org/event/2022-03-05
Accessibility: The Birmingham Botanical Gardens is accessible though there are several unpaved and uneven trails. Plenty of birding can be done from the paved paths which can be found throughout the park.
The birds: Spring migrants and resident birds.
Trip leaders: Greg Harber and Susan Barrow will lead this trip.
