The Thornton W. Burgess Society’s Green Briar Nature Center is pleased to present its thirteenth Annual Bird Carvers’ Show, Sale & Wildlife Arts Festival.  Our exhibitors are many of the nation's leading bird carvers and wildlife artists who can boast of numerous awards received at many of the country’s most prestigious carving competitions.  We are indebted to them for keeping alive the tradition of bird and animal painting and carving in our area.  Their replicating and preserving the beauties of nature in wood and on canvas matches well with the Burgess Society’s mission “to inspire reverence for wildlife and concern for the natural environment.”  All admission fees benefit the educational programs of the Burgess Society. Please pay at the door.

 

 Admission: $3 members, $5 non-members

benefits the Society's educational programs.
