For Juneteenth, our partners at Georgia Audubon are leading two bird walks through the Atlanta History Center's 33-acre birding hotspot, Goizueta Gardens. Too often, minority nature enthusiasts are confronted with unwarranted suspicion, threats and violence when enjoying the outdoors and "birding while Black." We believe the peacefulness and healing nature of being in the woods, and the joy of birdwatching should be safe and available to everyone. Whether this is your first time using binoculars (and Audubon is bringing a bunch to share) or you are a seasoned pro, please join us in honor of Black Birders. One to watch is Georgia's own Isaiah Scott on Instagram or here. Looking for more outdoors?

- The 8am walk is recommended for birders of all levels and families with children over 10.
- The 10am walk is open to all ages.
- Please note that no dogs or strollers are allowed.
- The walks will cover one to two miles of mild hiking terrain, including mulched and graveled paths. Hiking shoes, insect repellant, sunscreen and water are recommended; bring binoculars if you have some.
This event is hosted by Atlanta History Center in partnership with Georgia Audubon.
