HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Something brand new is coming to the Huntsville Botanical Garden.

A ceremony on Tuesday introduced the latest enhancement.

The newest portion of the children’s garden called Tweetsville was unveiled.

There was limited in-person attendance for safety precautions and the event was livestreamed on the Garden’s Facebook page.

Tweetsville will be an experience for guests of all ages to observe birds in their natural habitat.

It’s going to allow guests to interact and observe birds while finding new ways to connect with nature in the 18,000-sqaure-foot area.

Additionally, the Botanical Garden also confirmed one key element will be a bird watch station.

The bird watch will look out on an enclosed landscape that is designed to attract migrating and local birds.

Another interact element includes a giant bird nest to teach guests about bird behaviors.

Tweetsville will offer a hands-on educational experience that allows guests to discover together.

Director of Communications and Special Projects at the Garden Anna Beck says staff is very excited.

“This is a really exciting milestone in this project and it’s going to be really great to share what’s going on with the community. We think it’s something that people will really love,” Beck said.

The new addition will be completed in two phases with the first phase scheduled to open in February.
