Birding in the Gardens: October Bird Walk
Saturday, October 25, 2014, 8 – 11 AM

Each month we team with an Audubon Master Birder from the Front Range Birding Company to discover the rich bird habitats of the Gardens, focusing on the various species that visit during that particular season. You’ll come away with a better understanding of bird ecology, useful tips on how to identify birds by sight and sound, and when and where to find different species. Whether you are new to birding or an experienced bird watcher, there is always something exciting to see through your binoculars at Hudson Gardens!

This walk will be held outdoors. Participants will meet in front of the Gift Shop. Dress for the weather, bring snacks and a pair of binoculars. No prior birding experience is necessary.

Registration: $8/member, $10/nonmember. Space is limited and advance registration is required. Call the Education Department at (303) 797-8565 ext. 306 or visit to register.
