Hummingbird Garden Party
August 13 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
We are recommencing this fantastic summer celebration this year after a break (due to COVID-19).
Come on out and enjoy biscuits and tea, befitting any garden party. Then take a tour of the gardens, scoop critters from the marsh ponds, and listen to the heartbeat of a hummingbird, which can be up to 1200 beats/minute!! Lucky visitors may even be offered the opportunity to hold a hummingbird in the palm of their hand as it is released back into the garden to feed.
All pollinator species celebrated at this event including the Monarch Butterfly. Witness the wonder of Monarch butterflies in all stages of their metamorphosis,let them tickle your nose or fingertips as they are released into the gardens to make their first flights. Ask one of our gardeners about the importance of milkweed to the survival of the species and find the 4 species of milkweed we have planted!
Admission $10 (Kids 10 and younger-Free)
