The “Sunset At the Rookery” fundraiser will be held on Saturday, March 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. This special after-hours event gives guests the opportunity to view the sunset and migratory birds from our dock on Trout Lake. Annually, an estimated 50,000 birds use the TLNC rookery to roost, leaving in the morning and making an impressive sight as flocks fly back against the sunset.

This fundraiser features birding experts Bob and Mary Wexler for bird spotting and identification. Guests will be served wine, tea, hors d’oeuvres and snacks both at the dock and in our education building. Our main trail will be lighted for the return walk from the dock. The sunset is at 6:25 PM.

            Bring binoculars and cameras if you wish, loaner binoculars will be available. Cost is $20 per person with tickets available at www.universe.com/rookery2019 or purchase tickets (cash/check only) at the Center.
