Come out and meet your local fellow Audubon members and supporters and enjoy a spring day in the garden!
On Sunday, April 24 from 1 to 5 in the afternoon, there will be an Open Garden event in Downey for the members of the local Audubon Chapters. Decades long members and supporters of the Audubon Society, Cat and Bob Waters are native plant gardeners who put in a small bird sanctuary on a vacant lot adjacent to their house. Planted mainly in California native plants, the Sanctuary has hosted 130 species of birds since its opening day and the list grows every year. In past years the garden has been shown on the Theodore Payne Foundation annual native plant garden tour and featured in WildBird, Hobby Farm and Backyard Birding magazines.
Flat shoes are suggested. Closely watched children accompanied by parent(s) are welcome. Photography is OK. The garden is partially accessible. A bathroom is available. And, light refreshments will be served.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 562-869-6718 and the address and any other details will be relayed.
