The public is invited to join us at Hermann Park on the second Monday morning of each month. There is no charge for these bird walks and children are welcome. We meet in parking lot “D” on the south side of the Miller Outdoor Theatre stage.
From Hermann Park Drive parking lot “D” shares the entrance with parking lot “E”. From the fountain in front of Hotel ZaZa, drive around on Hermann Park Dr.(also shown as Golf Course Dr. on some maps) past the Museum of Natural Science and McGovern Centennial Gardens. The entrance to Parking Lot D will be on your right side, just before you get to the large lots in front of the main zoo entrance. The entrance will say Parking Lot “E”. Go in there. Parking Lot “D” is behind Lot “E”.

Please RSVP to Theo Ostler so that he can let you know of any additional information prior to the survey.
