Schlitz Audubon Annual Gala

Did you know a gathering of owls is called a Parliament? Join us Friday, June 5th for our 2015 Gala: Parliament Party! Schlitz Audubon Nature Center is Milwaukee's premier nature sanctuary, featuring 185 acres of forested trails, Lake Michigan beachfront, restored prairies, dramatic ravines, and wetland habitat. We are also a designated Important Bird Area, as this is a vital stop on the migratory flyway. Schlitz Audubon is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. On June 5th, the evening starts with a guided nature walk at 5:30pm. Return to the Center at 6 for cocktails and music by Frogwater. Dinner features locally-grown ingredients and a full bar will be on-hand. Then check out the treasures available at the live and silent auctions. Schlitz Audubon educates all ages about Wisconsin wildlife and habitat. Programs start with our preschool, then we offer school-age field trips and in-school programs, as well as classes which enrich the lives of many working and retired adults. The Annual Gala is our biggest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds support conservation and land management initiatives, as well as environmental education including student scholarships, school programs, and the preschool. Reservations must be made by Wednesday, May 20th. Please join us Friday, June 5th in supporting our mission to help people of every age develop meaningful and sustaining connections to nature.
