Across California, bird populations have been ravaged by fire and drought with some habitats losing more than 40 percent of their species, according to studies in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Drawing inspiration from Grammy Award winning music supervisor Randall Poster’s For the Birds: The Birdsong Project and with creative consultation by Merryl Brown of Merryl Brown Events, we come together for an event in the Garden to raise awareness of bird conservation across the nation and to raise critical funds for the education and conservation programs at Lotusland.

Reserve your space now as this event is always an early sell out!
