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!

Come to Things that Go Bump in the Night and meet the owls, opossums, spiders and plants who rule the Garden at night!

Things that Go Bump in the Night is a fun evening family event to observe and learn about plants and animals that are most active at night. Visitors follow Garden paths with a passport to visit interactive stations exploring the nocturnal world and its amazing critters.

This year's highlights include:

Wild Wings of California with several raptors including live owls! Please note Wild Wings of California will be onsite until 8 p.m. each event evening. 

Poppy the opposum and her wildlife rehabilitator Janet Chaney - Because, of course, 'possums are awesome! 

The World Famous Spider Show - In this very entertaining comedic "bug" show, children of all ages learn all about how spiders have adapted to catch their prey in different ways. Then, the kids' acting skills will be tested as some of them will become the spider and prey in a hilarious group of interactive theatrical "skits." This is fun for the whole family.

Kimmi Kraus returns with Project Wildsong to dispel myths and misinformation by providing interpretation and education about their live wolves, Ambassador Wolf Damu and Ambassador Wolf Cael, inspiring visitors with their beauty and with the truth about wolves.
