Tweetsville is a new immersive experience in the Children’s Garden that explores the role that birds play in our ecosystem. Guests can observe birds in their natural environment, learn about their native habitats, and discover how plants, animals, and people rely on each other to create a healthy ecosystem.
Tweetsville will be completed in two phases, and the first phase of Tweetsville is open to the public! The first phase features the Lewis Bird Watch, a viewing area where guests can observe birds in their natural environment from behind a one-way glass, and the “See Rocket City” birdhouse, a larger-than-life birdhouse structure that serves as an iconic entrance to Tweetsville. Guests will also find educational activities, dynamic plantings of Alabama native plants, and winding paths that guide learners through the immersive journey.
Check out the videos below to learn more about Tweetsville and what this new experience means for our environment and our community.

Funding for the second phase of Tweetsville is underway! The second phase of Tweetsville will include giant bird nests that teach learners about bird behaviors and model tiny homes that demonstrate how to attract birds in a backyard setting. Altogether, Tweetsville will add 18,000 square feet of immersive and educational experiences to the Children’s Garden.
