Great Backyard Bird Count
2382 Pine Mountain Road
Participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) on Saturday, February 16th! Held every year in February, the GBBC contributes data that provides a snapshot of bird distribution and helps scientists observe changes over the past two decades.
While the GBBC is held over the course of an entire weekend (Feb 15-18), Smith-Gilbert Gardens will host and submit a count on Saturday from 9AM-2PM. Bird-watching tours will be held throughout the morning by backyard birding experts. Children will enjoy story time, scavenger hunts and bird-themed crafts.
This event is included with general admission
