The quiet of the Arboretum's Monthly Meditative Morning makes for a wonderful way to listen for bird song. This walk takes you to some of the best spots to enjoy birding in our gardens and forest. Bring your binoculars and walk along with one of our expert Adult Education Instructors from Ventures Birding Tours. Open to beginning and experienced birders alike.
