Xtreme Hummingbird Xtravaganza
XHX is a yearly event at GCBO that takes place during the peak of Ruby-throated Hummingbird migration in the fall. It features symbolic hummingbird adoptions and live hummingbird banding where you get the opportunity to see these amazing birds up close and in the hand! There will be educational booths, activities for kids, plant sale, and our nature store. Tickets are $5 for adults and children 12 and under get in for free!
Tickets can only be purchased upon entry to the event.
One of the big attractions at XHX is our live hummingbird banding. Hummers are caught in special traps and handled by professional banders. They are then weighed, measured, and banded.
