Great Reasons to Join the Gardens!
Aldridge Gardens is now open to members only from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. daily.
MONDAYS THROUGH THURSDAYS YOU'LL HAVE A REEL-LY GREAT TIME!
It's too far to drive to the lake in the middle of the week, but you can still have a reel-ly great time this spring! Bring your gear and enjoy fishing at the Gardens on Tuesdays and Thursdays after 4:00. We promise we won't tell anyone why you cut out of work early!
WALK WITH YOUR DOGS ON WEDNESDAYS - AND NOW MONDAYS AS WELL!
Members don't have to wait for "Paws in the Gardens" to enjoy a walk with their pooches - now they can bring leashed dogs to the Gardens on Mondays and Wednesdays after 4:00. With new spots to sniff and smell, your furry friends will love you for switching up the same old neighborhood stroll!
MEMBERS-ONLY GUIDED BIRD WALKS
See the Gardens in a whole new way when you enjoy a 2-hour guided bird walk!
8:00 to 10:00 a.m.
One Saturday morning each month, Dr. Richard and Patricia Ryel guide 15 members on a trek to discover the birds of Aldridge Gardens. Throughout the 2013 and 2014 seasons, more than 80 members participated in the walks. Last year, the groups saw and identified 63 species of birds - averaging 26 species per outing from March through November. That's quite a testament to the bird diversity within the 30 acres comprising beautiful Aldridge Gardens!
In 2015, come on out and see the amazing birds of Aldridge Gardens for yourself. Don't forget to bring binoculars and cameras so you don't miss a thing!
Members-Only Guided Bird Walks are free, but each is limited to 15 members. Reservations are required.
