The free event, set to take place on Sunday, June 8, from 1 to 4 p.m. on the arboretum grounds, will provide participants an opportunity to look for and identify the birds that live on the grounds.
A number of birds can be identified, from the smallest chickadee to the great blue heron.
There are several bird viewing stations set up around the arboretum, allowing individuals to view the birds at a leisurely pace.
Audubon members and volunteers will be available at each of the stations to answer questions.
