Wine in the Wetlands is the signature, annual fundraising event for Mitchell Lake Audubon Center. In 2017, the cocktail casual event took place at Magnolia Halle on the evening of Friday, September 15.

The center opens new eyes to nature and often provides the first opportunity many children have to experience the joys of the outdoors and to learn about the importance of caring for and protecting our natural heritage. We are excited to share an evening with you that benefits Mitchell Lake’s education programs, onsite restoration efforts, and community conservation.
