Education Programs include:

  • Intro to Appreciating Birds

    It’s not uncommon for people to feel nervous around birds. After all, they can fly and make sudden movements, and there are many varied species, some of which are elusive or even unusual. Birds can also bring so much joy to our lives. Their songs, their beauty, and their critically important role in our shared ecosystem are all wonderful reasons to learn to appreciate and enjoy birds. Join the National Aviary to learn about birds and what makes them so special with this exciting program.

  • What’s Good for Birds is Good for Your Backyard

    By creating bird-friendly habitat for birds you reduce the amount of time spent lawn-mowing, you reduce or eliminate your use of garden pesticides and herbicides, and you give yourself a beautiful living landscape that is healthier for you, your children, your pets, and wild birds.  This class will give you a place to start in thinking about ways you can change your yard to be more attractive and productive for birds and, at the same time, happier and healthier for you!

  • We Do Bird Conservation

    There is a great deal of work behind the scenes that positively impacts bird conservation around the world.  This program will focus on what it is that our visitors may not know about the National Aviary: its successes and ongoing strategies for promoting bird conservation.
