at the New Orleans Botanical Garden

The New Orleans Botanical Garden invites you to participate in our birdhouse exhibit, Home TWEET Home.

The Home TWEET Home birdhouse exhibit will kick off April 4th right before our Spring Garden Show April 7th & 8th, 2018 which brings 3000 people to the garden.

The exhibit will be up for the month of April where the public can place silent bids on their favorite birdhouses up for auction. Bids can be placed daily in the Oscar J. Tolmas Vistitor Center, (the entrance to the New Orleans Botanical Garden).

April 30th, 5pm to 7pm we will have a Home TWEET Home reception for all participants where we will distribute the birdhouses to their new owners.
You have a choice to either donate your birdhouse to the New Orleans Botanical Garden as part of our fundraising effort (and we hope you do), or split the bid with the New Orleans Botanical Garden. 
Our goal is to have at least 50 birdhouses on exhibit and WE NEED YOU! We are targeting local artists, architects, organizations, local businesses and talented individuals for this exciting exhibit.
Please consider joining us for this fun filled exhibit that REALLY is for the birds!
