The Front Porch

Celebrate summer on the Avenue

In the fall of 1967, Clara, a white widow, stubbornly refuses her daughter's insistence she move from her home in Baltimore where she's lived for 30 years; due to increasing racial tensions in the country and because her new neighbors are black. Although she's a bit apprehensive about them at first, in time, she eventually develops a warm relationship. When Dr. Martin Luther King is assassinated in the spring of 1968, tensions explode throughout the city and both families are caught in the middle of a race riot. Through their shared experiences; they come to appreciate and value their neighborhood and community, confront their fears and prejudices and become true friends.

San Diego Bird Festival

Feb 16 - Feb 20, 2022

The San Diego Audubon Society invites you to the San Diego Bird Festival, which celebrates the birds and habitats of San Diego county. We're celebrating the birds and habitats of our county, which truly offer some of the best birding in the United States.

In a world where social media and smart devices seem to be taking over, birds are a lovely reminder that the world is full of real experiences. All you need to do is Look Up! 

We hope you will join us for the celebration, and we'll give you plenty of opportunities to "look up" and see the birds of San Diego. Know that your experience is giving something back to the birds: the proceeds of this festival support the education, conservation, and sanctuary programs of San Diego Audubon Society. We thank you for your support, and hope to meet you at the Festival.
