We are excited to announce our Golden Anniversary Gala, celebrating 50 years of bird and wildlife conservation. This year’s gala is the most important fundraising event of Houston Audubon’s landmark 50th Anniversary. Gala proceeds will benefit the organization in its work to ensure special natural places, critical habitat, and resilient bird populations will be a legacy for future generations to enjoy.

For the past 50 years, Houston Audubon has been the voice for birds, and we’ve served the Houston-Gulf Coast region through land conservation, habitat restoration, education and advocacy. At this year’s gala, we will celebrate Houston Audubon’s journey, its achievements, and the dedicated donors, volunteers, staff, and partners whose collective efforts have led us to being the regional avian conservation leader we are today. 

Our silent auction is now open! Final bidding will take place the evening of the gala from 6:30 - 7:30 pm. 

Complimentary valet parking.
