An Evening at Wild Bird
Friends of the Sea Otter is excited to announce the date for “An Evening at Wild Bird”.
On September 26, 2015, the event will take place at the former home of Friends of the Sea Otter founder, the late Margaret Owings. Wild Bird, as Margaret called the home overlooking the magnificent Big Sur Coast, will be the setting to launch a new era in sea otter conservation. Wild Bird is historic because of the groundbreaking conservation issues Margaret Owings developed and initiated while living in this home. It is here, at this very location, where Margaret Owings and many of her friends and colleagues would deliberate and find solutions for not only sea otter issues, but many other critical conservation initiatives.
Friends of the Sea Otter, will host an evening of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails overlooking the vast Pacific Ocean, followed by a catered dinner and dessert, which will then lead into discussions with various noted friends and colleagues of Margaret Owings and Friends of the Sea Otter co-founder, Dr. Jim Mattison. The list of invited guests includes former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and noted sea otter expert, Dr. Tim Tinker. “An Evening at Wild Bird” will host speakers discussing the mission of Friends of the Sea Otter and its advocacy efforts relating to the emerging studies surrounding this keystone species and its ecosystem, and new strategies to recover this species.
Please make your plans now to be a part of a historic evening of discussion and promise in Friends of the Sea Otter’s nearly 50-year mission of protecting sea otters and their habitat. Click here for more information and how you can sign up to attend.
