Bird programs are offered year-round for all ages and interest levels. Owl prowls at night, early morning bird counts with the Nashville Chapter of the Tennessee Ornithological Society, migration hikes, summer breeding bird hikes, programs on specific species like bluebirds, hummingbirds, vultures and woodcocks--we are ready to celebrate the "Year of the Bird" with you!

Bird-related programs and events, festivals and bird banding sessions are offered throughout the spring. Bird programs are available to groups on a limited basis. Contact the nature center at 615-862-8555 or

Help us Celebrate Hummingbirds on Saturday, August 25. Nature Center staff and volunteers, in conjunction with the BIRD program, will offer free activities, booths and a banding session from 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Check out our events page for more information.

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. Visit the Leaning Center and pick up a bird checklist, explore the new 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!
