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.

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.

Questions about accessibility? Email us for more information about how we can meet your needs.

The birds: You can check out the latest eBird checklists for BBG here and learn more about this popular #Birdingham spot on the Appalachian Highlands Birding Trail.

Trip leaders: Linda Neighbors (205-568-5554) and Susan Barrow (205-253-8667) will lead this trip. Please contact on day of field trip only.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Through more than seventy-five years of conservation work in one of our nation’s most ecologically rich states, Alabama Audubon has seen firsthand how diversity strengthens natural communities. We believe that the same principle applies to human communities, which is why our organization is committed to providing equitable opportunities for all Alabamians to learn about and enjoy wild birds, their habitats, and the natural world. One of the best ways to support that belief is by valuing and actively seeking to strengthen diversity among our staff, our board, and our membership. To that end, Alabama Audubon welcomes the whole of our community to our work, and strives to make our programs, classes, and events open and accessible to all.
