Participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) on Saturday, February 15th!

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 international GBBC takes place over the course of four days (Feb 14-17), Smith-Gilbert Gardens will host and submit a count on Saturday 2/15 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 garden admission
