Special Events at Smith-Gilbert Gardens

Hummingbird Banding Register Now

Saturday, August 23, 2014 – This will be the 4th year SGG has teamed up with Birdwatcher Supply to catch and band hummers!  The early bird catches the worm, but in this case the early attendee gets to see the Hummingbird banded!  The birds are out early visiting our feeders.  Did you know once the birds have been banded they will sit on your hand for a second or two before flying away?  (Kids love this!) Along with tours of the garden and lessons in beginning bird watching, we will have fun crafts for children.

Gate opens early! At 8am. Activities through 11am.

- Meet the Hummingbird Whisperer - Julia Elliott
- Hawk Talk – join Monteen McCord for an inside look at these birds of prey.
- Bird ID with birder Pat Pepper
- If You Plant It, They Will Come – find the best plants to attract hummingbirds to your own garden. ~ Select plants available for sale.
- Info on how to attract pollinators to your garden.
- Just For Kids Fun Craft

– Gift Shop – Hummingbird note cards & more featured

Please note that additional parking for Saturday’s Hummingbird Banding Event will be at Emmanuel Temple on 2210 Pine Mountain Road. We will have a shuttle that will run attendees back and forth between the Gardens and the extra Parking.

Regular admission applies. Buy your admission online until Friday, August 22nd. Your online purchase is successful if you receive a confirmation email. Print your confirmation and bring it with you on Saturday morning.
