THE FALL ROOST
Protecting Birds in New York City
Tuesday, October 13, 2015
409 East 59th Street
Join us as we celebrate NYC Audubon’s eleventh annual Fall Roost. This year we are thrilled to honor Marsilia Boyle and ARNOLD GLAS. A longtime director and officer of NYC Audubon and a member of the Audubon New York board, Marcy champions our efforts around the City, represents us on the Audubon Council of New York State, and keeps an eagle eye on our work in Brooklyn. Glass manufacturer ARNOLD GLAS, and especially its former CEO Hans-Joachim Arnold, is the creator of Ornilux, a bird-friendly building glass that is saving countless birds worldwide. We also add to the Fall Roost festivities the recognition of our first "Volunteer of the Year," Deborah Jones.
Silent Auction and Reception 6:30-7:30pm
Dinner and Program 7:30-9:30pm
For those of you who are already fans of our party, we are migrating to Guastavino’s, the exciting landmarked space under the 59th Street Bridge.
This year's Silent Auction will include a number of exciting opportunities and adventures. Our complete list of offerings will be posted soon, but below are a few highlights to whet your "bidding appetite":
- Outings with celebrity authors Tom Stephenson, and Leslie Day
- Walks and Cruises with Joe Giunta, Don Riepe, and Gabriel Willow
- Adventures in pelagic birding, horseshoe crab tagging, and bird-banding
- Golf for four at The Bridge Golf Club
- Behind-the-scenes access to the American Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and NYC Audubon’s Glass Testing Tunnel at the Bronx Zoo
Proceeds from the Fall Roost support NYC Audubon's efforts to protect wild birds and their habitat in the five boroughs through scientific research, community engagement, advocacy, and hands-on habitat restoration. In particular, we are working to improve the quality of stopover habitat and reduce threats to birds from unnecessary illumination and from reflective glass.
