Please note: West Building is now closed through October 7, 2022, to complete an exciting reinstallation of the People’s Collection. During this time enjoy free exhibitions on view in East Building, indoor and outdoor events and programming, and the 164-acre Museum Park. We’re excited to welcome visitors back to a new Museum experience starting October 8, 2022. Learn more about this project.

Morning Bird Walk (Canceled)


Join our resident birding enthusiast, Park ranger Chantal Taunton, on a meandering 90-minute walk through the Museum Park in search of migratory and native birds. Wear a mask and please bring your own binoculars, as well as water, a notebook, and pen. All levels welcome, from beginner to seasoned birders; ages 8 and up. Space is limited.

For questions about the content of this program, email Bryanne Senor.

Important safety information

• Preregistration required; no walkups.

• Participants must wear cloth masks throughout the program.

• Participants who are not in the same family or group must stay at least 6 feet from other participants.

• As participants arrive, they will see markings on the ground, 8 feet apart, to stand on. Once in their sports, participants will be checked in verbally by the name tickets were reserved under.

• Participants must also verbally respond to a self-screen assessment. Please review the assessment before attending the program. If you answer “yes” to any question or have any symptoms, stay home.

• The program begins with a brief introduction in the Ellipse followed by a guided walk. As we stop to observe a bird, or when the ranger wants to speak to the group, everyone will stop to listen but not congregate to view; this is where binoculars come in handy.

We appreciate everyone’s efforts to make this a safe and enjoyable experience!
