Education and Programs
A variety of bird programs are offered year round for all ages and interest levels. From owl prowls at night, early morning bird counts with the Nashville Chapter of the Tennessee Ornithological Society, migration hikes, and summer breeding bird hikes, to programs on specific species like bluebirds, hummingbirds, vultures and woodcocks. While some programs offered are for all ages and families, others are designed for preschoolers, homeschoolers, school field trips, high school students and adults.
Check out the Nature Center for specific programs and events, festivals and bird banding sessions. Bird programs are available to groups on a limited basis. Contact the nature center at 615-862-8555 or email@example.com.
A great way to learn more about birds is to visit the Nature Center campus and explore the pond, gardens, bird feeding stations and take a hike on the Hungry Hawk Trail. Go into the Leaning Center and pick up a bird checklist, find the bird exhibit , and talk to a naturalist. Another good way to learn more is to volunteer to help with bird programs and projects. You can pick up at volunteer application at the front desk!
Free Bird Hikes and Programs Scheduled for Winter 2018
Although snow covers the forest floor and a chill is in the air, bird research projects continue! In fact, cold temperatures and snow can bring many sparrows and woodpeckers to nature center feeders. In order to inventory bird species that call Warner Park home, as well as to track trends in populations and habitat reflection, bird banding research will take place in January and February.
