"It's For the Birds," a gala event to raise funds for the ongoing support and maintenance of the new U. City in Bloom Bird Habitat Garden, will be held Sunday, Sept. 30, 6:30 p.m., at the Centennial Commons Recreational Complex, 7210 Olive Blvd. in University City. The event will include wine, appetizers, music and a silent auction.

The Bird Habitat Garden is located in the courtyard of Centennial Commons. This region is on the great Mississippi migratory bird flyway. In addition to beautifying the area and utilizing native plants, the new garden will provide food and habitat for both local and migratory birds and provide a teaching opportunity for children and adults.

Consultation and direction of the development of the Bird Habitat Garden has been provided by the St. Louis Audubon Society and Cindy Gilberg, a noted native plant expert.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service awarded a $5,000 matching grant to U. City in Bloom to further the establishment of the garden. Additional funding has been provided by the Boeing Employees Fund, in partnership with the U. City Parks Foundation; the Creley Fund of the St. Louis Audubon Society; and private donors through U. City in Bloom. The skillful help of the University City Parks Department has been indispensable.
