Support environmental education and conservation by purchasing a ticket or sponsorship to Wine in the Wetlands. 

Wine in the Wetlands is the signature, annual fundraising event for Mitchell Lake Audubon Center. In 2019, the cocktail event will take place at the Legacy Room on the Palo Alto College campus, on the evening of Friday, September 6.

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.
