BVAS’s annual Birdhouse Auction party, fundraiser, and open house was once again a success! Every year seems bigger and better, and draws in a variety of members of the community. This year was no exception! We had neighbors wandering in for the first time, to discover this gem in their neighborhood. Friends from the conservation, education, and activist communities were here. People had a great time, and especially enjoyed our upstairs deck, where great conversations occurred while viewing the BV Lagoon. We estimate that well over 275 guests participated. Of course it couldn’t have happened without our dedicated Board and volunteers, who organized the auction and ensured it ran smoothly. And the band, Endangered Speciez, has been a gift to our event since our first year. Besides being an important community event, we also raised a significant amount of money to support our nature center and programs. Here are some photos of this special evening.
