Birding in the Garden
Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden | Fri, September 14, 2018, 9:00am - 11:00am
Bring binoculars to look and listen for birds at Stoneleigh. Some species may surprise you!
Gardens, grasses, and native-plant habitats sustain a variety of hawks, woodpeckers, warblers, and other birds. Join Natural Lands staffer Debbie Beer for a guided bird walk, looking and listening for our feathered friends along the way. Participate in our citizen-science efforts to track migratory and breeding birds as Stoneleigh transforms from private estate to public garden.
For nearly 80 years, Stoneleigh was the home of the Haas family, which donated the property to Natural Lands in 2016 so that it would remain preserved forever.
The property includes stately trees, winding pathways, and lush gardens that were designed by a number of notable landscape architects over the past century—including the Olmsted Brothers, sons of the famed Frederick Law Olmsted.
- Meet at the Welcome Kiosk.
- Birders of all backgrounds and experience levels are invited to join the walk.
- Bring binoculars if you have them (a few will be available to borrow).
- Dress for the season and wear sturdy shoes.
- Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
