August brings hundreds and hundreds of hummingbirds to Land Between the Lakes as they migrate south to Central America. You can see as many as 200 of them in a single day at the Woodlands Nature Station! Join them to celebrate this natural spectacle and watch the backyard beauties as they buzz around the native gardens, fueling up for the next leg of their long journey.
Check out hummingbird banding demonstrations that will be ongoing throughout August as biologists catch, tag, and release hummingbirds as part of a long-term research project. Discover how you can help hummingbirds and other migrating wildlife such as monarchs, bats, dragonflies, and songbirds right at your own home! Stroll through the outdoor gallery of local wildlife artists, stop by the native plant sale, and enjoy programs, demonstrations, a hummingbird gift shop, and kids’ crafts and games! Plan on spending the whole day by bringing a picnic or stopping by their onsite food vendor. Native plant sale, expert-led programs, backyard wildlife demonstration and kid’s activities will also be available.
