Celebrate the Audubon Photography Awards at Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary

Join us for a celebration of avian photography!

The 2019 Audubon Photography Award winners have been decided! We are excited to bring this celebration of the wonderful world of bird photography here to Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary. Although the photos selected speak for themselves, they can be appreciated at a different level when viewed in larger prints. This year, we will be hosting an open viewing gallery at Lyford House while the beautiful prints are on tour. The viewings shall be entrance by donation and will proceed as follows:

Evening Gallery 

Friday February 7th, 14th 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM in Lyford House

Enjoy an evening in historic Lyford House and see prints of the 2019 Audubon Photography Award winners with the stunning city night lights over Richardson Bay in the background. 

Daytime Gallery and Photo Bird Walks

Saturday February 15th 10 AM - 3 PM

Come out to see the Audubon Photography Award gallery and take some of the imminent inspiration on a photo bird walk around Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary with Audubon California staff. Walks will depart from Lyford House at 11 AM and 1 PM.

We look forward to seeing you there!
