Class fees include admission to the garden and parking. The gate opens by 8:45 am for morning classes and participants are invited to stroll through the gardens and see spectacular floral displays after class. Class sizes are limited, and many fill quickly. To avoid disappointment, we recommend registering early.

Explore the incredible world of hummingbirds. We’ll begin at the Arboretum and learn about specialized feeding and unique behavior. Then, we’ll head into the grounds in pursuit of the smallest birds in the world. We’ll resume our quest for hummers the following Saturday at the Trinity River Audubon Center. We’ll trek the trails and learn how to create hummingbird friendly
feeders and gardens. The first session of class will be held at the Arboretum, and the second session of the class will be held at TRAC, located at 6500 Great Trinity Forest Way, Dallas, TX 75217.
