Save Our Seabirds Art in the Garden Event

The Giving Coast

Save Our Seabirds announces a first of its kind event, Art in the Garden, Sunday, November 13, 4:00pm to 6:00pm, bringing together talented, award-winning local artists and the local community in support of the critical mission of SOS. Located at the enchanting Sarasota Garden Club, the avian-inspired work of over a dozen artists will be on exhibit and offered for sale. Featuring beautiful paintings, photography, and other art that captures the amazing grace and beauty of our indigenous birdlife. Sip a cocktail and enjoy light bites while viewing the exhibit amidst the lush botanical gardens. Tickets are $50 per person with net proceeds from art sales benefiting SOS. Capacity is limited, so please reserve your spot by visiting www.saveourseabirds.org. SOS is open 7 days a week from 10 AM to 4 PM every day of the year. Annually, staff and volunteers respond to over 5,000 calls of birds in distress. Qualifying rescued birds that are unable to return to the wild are given permanent homes in the Wild Bird Learning Center. SOS provides a permanent home for more than 120 birds of 62 species including: brown pelicans, royal terns, great blue herons, sandhill cranes, and several species of owls, hawks, parrots, macaws, and conures. Strolling the “Birdwalk”, visitors can view the various types of diversification and adaptations that make each species unique. Save Our Seabirds is committed to the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured birds with the goal of releasing them back to their natural habitats. A lifelong sanctuary and specialized medical care are provided for those birds that cannot be released. We use their stories to educate the public about avian conservation. SOS is on the grounds of the former Pelican Man Bird Sanctuary located at 1708 Ken Thompson Parkway on City Island, Sarasota. Visit www.saveourseabirds.org for more information.
