Monthly Bird Walk

The first Monday of each month, SDBG hosts a bird walk led by our birding specialists Rita Campbell, Sue Smith, and Gretchen Nell. SDBG is a birding hotspot providing a home to our native birds, migrants, and wintering guests. Starting at 8am to get the most out of our early morning birding hours, the group searches out the greatest number of bird species in our native and ornamental gardens. The experience varies according to the season but always provides an interesting, friendly, and informative walk through the Garden. All those interested in birding, beginner to expert, are invited to attend.
