Backyard Birding Tour

After the 2021 pandemic-induced hiatus, our annual Backyard Birding Tour is now in the early planning stages and is slated to be held in early 2022!

The Backyard Birding Tour is Alachua Audubon’s annual spring trip through a variety of bird-interesting backyards. The lineup varies every year but the event is a great opportunity to:

•  Explore several of Gainesville’s premier backyard birding habitats on a self-guided tour
•  Learn how to attract a diverse group of birds to your own backyard
•  Discover what types of vegetation to plant and where to plant it in your own yard to attract more species of birds
•  Learn how water features can be effective bird attractants
•  Educational displays and bird experts will be at each tour stop to answer your questions.
