The Vallarta Botanical Garden has been generously supplied with great educational materials for our own International Migratory Bird Day Event on October 11th from our friends at Environment for the Americas.

Of the 124 species of birds so far documented to have been observed at the Vallarta Botanical Garden, 18 are considered migratory birds and an additional four species may have resident populations, but may also come through as migrants.

Of these, some, including the tiny Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus), make incredible journeys between Mexico and as far north as places like Alaska!

Ensuring a bright future for such species requires international coordination of conservation of habitats both in their summer and wintering zones as well as suitable places for pit stops along the way.

An important part of this kind of conservation work is public education - what we learn to love and appreciate, we will hopefully learn to care for.

Also, thanks to a grant from Optics for the Tropics, we have 10 pairs of Vortex Raptor binoculars for garden visitors to use during their visits here.

Our staff and volunteers are coordinating activities for the day with local bird guides including our friend Alejandro Martínez Rodriguez of Birding In Mexico.

Teachers interested in bringing their classes to participate in our International Migratory Bird Day activities are encouraged to send reservation requests to educdorambiental@vbgardens.org. Since participation is limited we recommend contacting us as soon as possible; as they say… the early bird catches the worm!
