Lindsay Wildlife Experience Hosts Golden Gate Audubon Society’s Centennial Art Exhibit
WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. —September 6, 2017— Lindsay Wildlife Experience is proud to be the final stop on Golden Gate Audubon Society’s traveling art exhibit beginning Oct. 3. To celebrate its centennial, Golden Gate Audubon Society is presenting its larger than life photo art exhibit 100 Years of Protecting Bay Area Birds!
The Golden Gate Audubon exhibit, which features stunning photos of Bay Area birds, from tiny Chestnut-backed Chickadees to powerful Golden Eagles, has been on display at Tilden Park, Oakland City Hall, and The Presidio.
Golden Gate Audubon Society—one of the oldest conservation organizations in the Bay Area—was founded in 1917 by a handful of former students of U.C. Berkeley ornithology professor Harold Bryant. Today, the group has more than 7,000 members in San Francisco and the East Bay, and some of them are strong supporters of Lindsay Wildlife as well.
Over the past 100 years, Golden Gate has played a leading role in protecting the Bay and other critical local habitats. Their work and Lindsay’s mission to inspire responsibility and respect for wildlife, go hand-in-hand.
“We are so thrilled to mark Golden Gate Audubon Society’s centennial by being the final and premiere stop for their art exhibit,” said Lindsay Executive Director Cheryl McCormick. “Their important work over the last century has blazed a trail in conservation, without which Lindsay’s educational programs would not be possible.”
When: Oct. 3. 2017-Jan. 2, 2018. Exhibit will span two floors of Lindsay Wildlife Experience.
Where: 1931 First Ave., Walnut Creek CA, 94597
Cost: Exhibit is free with cost of admission to Lindsay Wildlife. $8.50 general, $6.50 children and $7.50 seniors.
