Partner event: BVAS Birdhouse and Nature Art Auction

Saturday, October 15, 2022
4:00 pm7:00 pm

The annual BVAS Birdhouse and Nature Art Auction is returning Saturday, October 15!
Buena Vista Audubon’s annual fundraising event is looking for entries for our auction. We hope you will create and donate nature-inspired artwork to make it a successful event. Items can include birdhouses, bird feeders, bee houses, owl or bat boxes, sculptures, or other works of art. Will you pass the word to other artists and crafters? We have a limited number of unpainted birdhouses for sale at the Nature Center gift shop, 2202 South Coast Hwy, Oceanside, open most days from 10:00-1:00, as is the Nature Center for donation drop-offs. Please bring items in by October 5.

We also look forward to you attending the Birdhouse Auction on October 15, from 4:00-7:00 p.m.
With your $15 donation, you can visit with friends and enjoy snacks and drinks, and bid on unique art for yourself or a gift (think special Holiday gifts). Live music by MandoBasso, a mandolin and bass duo.

Some items will be for sale outside if you prefer not to attend an indoor event. Parking is limited, so please consider parking on a side street or carpooling.
