Hummingbird Trail Walk

APG Hummingbird Trail Walk at the State Botanical Gardens

When: Saturday, August 11, from 8:30-10:30 a.m.

During the first hour, Judy Glenn will guide you through the Hummingbird Trail to find where the hummingbirds feed and perch throughout the Garden. The hummers are tiny, but don’t worry—Judy developed the trail and knows their favorite hiding places. The second hour will be for you to independently view and photograph the hummingbirds. Judy will be available during this time for questions.

Where: The State Botanical Garden of Georgia. Meet in the back parking lot. Go straight past all parking lots and park in the lot near the chapel.

What to bring: Please dress for the hot weather, bring comfortable shoes, hat water, snacks, bug spray, sunscreen, photography gear and/or binoculars: camera, several batteries (If you have them), your longest lens, SD card, tripod (if desired), a lot of patience.

Why: Because it is fun to see and photograph them!

Details: You must have signed the waver on your APG membership form to attend (download here). Judy will have forms for you to sign if you have not signed one yet.

Hummingbird trail maps will be provided.
