The Woodland Bird Garden path meanders to a bridge overlooking the ravine, offering relaxing places to feed and observe many varieties of birds, plants and animals. Tree-shaded benches encourage rest and reflection. A variety of more than 300 annuals and perennials provide food and shelter year-round to birds in this habitat.
Interactive attractions engage visitors of every age with the Eagle’s Nest, Wild Turkey Wings and Bird Blind. The Woodland Bird Garden aims to teach visitors about habitat development that attracts and sustains bird and wildlife populations. Founded by educators, Alvin and Rosa Lee Sarachek, the Garden was built to make a positive impact on the environment and involve the sciences of ecology, biology and botany.
The majestic Peacock Sculpture sits with tail feathers spread. The peacock displays his beautiful plumage year-round. Extending the peacock’s tail are Tulips in spring, Vinca in summer, perhaps Chrysanthemums in fall, and Illuminations in winter.
