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 up to 15 members on a trek to discover the birds of Aldridge Gardens. Throughout past seasons, more than 80 members participated in the walks. In addition, our groups have seen 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!
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.
Bonsai Society Workshops
Exclusive workshops with John Walker
We have workshops, usually on the first Saturday of each month, with bonsai expert John Walker. These Bonsai Society members workshops are held at Aldridge Gardens in our NaphCare Education Building. Members bring their trees to work on with John.
Members-Only Garden Talks
Covering a wide variety of subjects
We offer special Members-Only Garden Talks on how to best maintain your garden, lawn, flowers, shrubs, and trees. These classes are usually taught by our Executive Director, Rip Weaver. But many times we have brought in outside speakers to cover specific topics. Watch our website and email messages to stay up-to-date on what Garden Talks are coming up on the calendar.
