Ready to Hatch

Join us for a magical evening of cocktails, gourmet dining, and avian friends!

Explore the world of conservation on June 2, 2017 when you attend Tracy Aviary’s spectacular Ready to Hatch Gala.

Ready to Hatch is the season’s best party with a purpose. You’ll relax in our lush garden area, among the sights and scents of spring while you celebrate the diversity of our avian residents.

This annual fundraiser is a major source of funding for the Tracy Aviary. Ready to Hatch supports Tracy Aviary Conservation Programs - using research, outreach, and conservation action to protect birds and their habitats. Maintaining this type of excellence – and providing great care for more than 135 species of birds – requires support from our community. Your support helps us introduce more people to the wonders of the natural world in the oldest and largest bird park in the U.S., and helps support the conservation of endangered species.

Ready to Hatch welcomes over 400 guests, giving insights into important conservation programs that impact our local eco-systems. This night showcases the beautiful grounds of Tracy Aviary in full bloom, complemented by live music, a silent auction, hand crafted local hors d'oeuvres from Urban Pioneer FoodsGastronomy, MeditrinaLaziz KitchenPierre Country Bakery & Cafe, Pop Art Snacks, and Pizza Nono. Beverage partners include Red Rock Brewing Vine LoreOgden's Own DistilleryMountain West DistilleryDented Brick DistilleryTea Zaanti, and Blue Copper Coffee. Guests are greeted by avian ambassadors with a unique nose-to-beak experience as their memorable evening takes flight.
