Birding 101

Spend Summer Saturday Evenings at the Garden

July 13, 2024 6:00 pm -
July 13, 2024 7:30 pm

During the Garden’s extended Summer Saturdays, join Houston Audubon to spread your wings and soar into the world of bird identification. Participants will learn all about birds in a climate-controlled setting, and then venture outdoors to identify birds using that newfound knowledge on a stroll of scenic cultivated and natural garden spaces. There will also be an opportunity to compete in a challenging round or two of bird bingo, where knowing facts about our feathered friends is the key to victory.

Participants should bring their own cameras / binoculars.

Birding 101 — including bird bingo — is included in the cost of general admission to the Garden, which is $15 per adult, $10 per child/student on Summer Saturdays. Garden members may use the general admission benefit(s) associated with their membership level to attend the workshop at no additional charge.

Houston Botanic Garden offers free parking for most events, which are often held in climate-controlled environments, rain or shine. If you have specific questions, please email​​
