The Pascagoula River Audubon Center has been building its nest on Rhodes Bayou in Moss Point since opening its doors in October 2015, and still today, it continues to expand its flock of supporters.
With the support of the Bacot-McCarty Foundation, Chevron Refinery and the Imperial Palace Casino, among many others, the Center is hosting the “Birds of a Feather” fundraiser to invite current and potential supporters to visit and learn more about new and existing programs. The event will take place along the bayou on Thursday, Oct. 24, from 6 to 9 p.m.
After spending nearly 10 years on the Pascagoula River site north of Interstate 10, the Center has made its permanent home in downtown Moss Point nestled among the trees and surrounded by marsh. Not only is it home to many local species of backyard birds and native plants, many people along the Gulf Coast community also call it home as part of the flock of supporters.
The Pascagoula River Audubon Center prides itself on providing conservation and education activities for children and adults alike, offering opportunities to showcase area artists, providing information and native plants for landscaping and is developing new programming to meet even more needs of the communities it serves. It has also become a popular venue for weddings, receptions, meetings, birthdays and other social gatherings.
“As a nonprofit organization, the Center works hard to provide opportunities for the community to support our work through its programs,” said Susan Stachowski, manager of the Center. “This fundraiser is an opportunity for us to share some of our current ideas and events while showcasing the facility.”
This fundraiser will feature cuisine from area restaurants including Scranton’s, Brady’s, Tay’s, Murky Waters, Bozo’s, Phoenicia, Imperial Palace and others. Tickets are $50 per person which include the meal and adult beverages. Entertainment for the evening will be provided by the trio of Buck and Kristi Canfield and Jennifer Waltman.
Tickets may be purchased at the Pascagoula River Audubon Center or online here.
