Event details

This ongoing event will be held from Wednesday, Aug. 2, to Thursday, Aug. 31. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays to Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.

Visit Hidden Oaks Nature Center’s green roof and get a vantage point you’ve never experienced before. We will have feeders on the roof and on the ground for viewing. Take a seat to relax as hummingbirds zip by or grab a pair of binoculars to follow their movements and see what other birds you can find. Head inside the nature center to learn more about these dazzling birds with hands-on activities and a take-home craft. Activities are self-guided, so drop in anytime during business hours.
