It was a magical evening this past Sunday at the Trinity River Audubon Center, located in the Great Trinity Forest- the largest urban hardwood forest in the United States. This unique venue hosted the 2015 Songbird Supper, a meal in the meadow benefiting habitat restoration and education on the great outdoors for children everywhere. Proceeds from this event will send children to camp, restore wildlife habitats, sponsor an education animal, and more.
The Trinity River Audubon Center is one of Dallas’ hidden gems; with 5 miles of winding trails, an exemplary exhibit hall featuring up close animal encounters and interactive exhibits, and stunning LEED Gold architecture, the Songbird Supper was truly a night to remember.
The night began with a reception, where guests mixed and mingled over delectable hors d'oeuvres such as Texas Gulf Shrimp with Avocado and Guajillo along with a variety of local craft beers such as delicious American amber ale and a blonde ale by White Rock Beer Project. Guests were able to explore the trails and enjoy the scenic prairie overlooking the Trinity River.
A dessert and cheese reception followed dinner with an assortment of desserts such as Tiramisu shooters and a raspberry panna cotta along with an assortment of fine cheeses. The evening closed with a guided walk and beautiful candlelight owl prowl along the Trinity River. The songbird supper was a night filled with delicious food and good company; the perfect way to spend a fall evening.
