AL Audubon Field Trip to Birmingham Botanical Gardens
March 11 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
March 11 , 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
Pre-registration is required by 12 p.m. CST on Friday, March 10th.
Participants must complete the mandatory online waiver. Please do not request registration for others when submitting your request.
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.
