Frontera Audubon and Holiday Wine and Liquor present Autumn on the Lawn

Mix and mingle under the stars during Autumn on the Lawn, a wine tasting event at Frontera Audubon Society on Wednesday, November 16th at 7 p.m. The lawn will be enlivened by the jazz sounds of duo Grace & Jim and fine wine will be flowing, courtesy of Holiday Wine and Liquor.

“We are looking forward to hosting a delightful fall evening of wine and jazz on the lawn of the historic Skaggs House with our friends, fellow Frontera supporters, and hopefully some folks who have never been here before,” said Frontera Audubon’s Vice President Maurie Haas.

Festivities will take place behind Frontera Audubon Society’s Skaggs House at 1101 S. Texas Blvd. Tickets are $20 presale and $25 the day of the event. To purchase tickets, call 956-968-3275.

Unique items for bid in the Skaggs House will include a stay in the Hill Country of Texas, exclusive birding excursions, spa packages, and more. Proceeds will go to benefit Frontera Audubon Society’s mission of providing habitat for birds and offering engaging nature programming to the Rio Grande Valley and surrounding areas.

“Beyond the lawn lies a precious little urban forest—The Thicket—and our goal is to keep that preserved and maintained for all to enjoy,” Haas said.

Frontera Audubon Society sits on 15 acres of natural beauty that includes trails, wetlands, butterfly gardens, a visitors’ center, gift shop, and an historic orchard and home. The 501©3 nonprofit organization has been in existence for over 30 years and offers opportunities for all people to enjoy nature and birding.

For more information, call Frontera Audubon Society at 956-968-3275.
