Description: Join Nature Guides Julia Siporin and Chris Roth for another monthly bird walk intended for people with all levels of birding experience, beginner to advanced. We’ll use vocalizations, habitat, and behavior clues for identification of our spring and year-round residents.

Option to continue the walk until noon for those who are interested. Meet at the Arboretum Visitor Center. $5, Members Free.
Description: Join Arboretum Assistant Site Manager August Jackson for a tour of the Arboretum's wildflowers and their pollinators. Discover how floral shape and color can influence successful pollination and how flowers attempt to "choose" their visitors. Learn the foraging and nesting habits of common native bees, and meet a cartoonish bumblebee-mimic fly that finds a home on Mount Pisgah's prairies.
