RBG Experiences - Into the Wild

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to locate and identify as many bird species as possible around Royal Botanical Gardens, alongside Jackson Hudecki and his hardy herd of experts. The terrain may be uneven, the weather could be questionable, but if the birds can handle it, so can we! Birders of any skill level are invited to join us on the quest to track down who is where at one of the hardest times of the year to survive.

Pre-registration required

Fee: $25/class or $70 for all 3 + service fee (Members 10% off)
