Limited loaner binoculars may be available to use during the walk. Take a leisurely walk through the garden to see and hear the numerous bird species that migrate through the San Gabriel Valley and the Inland Empire. Beginning and experienced birders are welcome to help find birds in the garden. Our collaborative efforts usually produce a good variety of local birds, and we always have a great time!
