Woods Walks and Birdwalks
The woods and gardens are open, and you are most welcome to enjoy and explore the woods and gardens on your own. Literature about the woods is available in the post box along the path (near the George Washington statue) and in a centrally located post box in the Bishop's Garden.
Two Bird Walks are scheduled for May 2017 - Wednesday, May 3rd and Wednesday, May 10. Meet at the George Washington equestrian statue on Pilgrim Road at 8:30 am. Bird Walks are FREE and no reservations are required.

The AHG Garden Docent Program prepares individuals to give tours of the Bishop's Garden and surrounding Cathedral gardens. Monthly garden walk-arounds and printed materials and plant lists educate prospective docents about these historic gardens in a fun and interesting way.
