On Saturday, June 16, we will have a Gala event for the Garuda Aviary, from 12 noon to 4pm. Come join us for live music! Delicious food! Games for kids! Bake sale! And more!
A number of the aviary birds will be on view in their outdoor flight cage for all to see, weather permitting. Talks and videos focused on the plight of captured exotic birds will be presented, along with guided tours of the Buddhist Temple. This family event will also feature live music presented by The B-12 Boosters, games for kids, and a variety of foods, including kid favorites such as hot dogs and a sampling of vegetarian and non-vegetarian entrees. There will also be a bake sale.
Parrots have the social and intellectual development of a 2 to 5 year old child, and a lifespan of about 80 years. Because many people who purchase birds are ill-prepared for such a long, intensive commitment, parrots are often the subjects of mistreatment and neglect. To ensure that the cycle of suffering for the birds is broken, Garuda Aviary does not adopt out its parrots and instead provides a sanctuary until the end of their natural lives.
Please join us, on the grounds of the beautiful Kunzang Palyul Choling Temple:
