A HOMEPLACE FOR HUMMINGBIRDS
Preserving a Backyard Legacy for the World
Wally and Marion Paton’s simple act of
kindness—opening their backyard to thousands
of birders—led their home-site to become a
sanctuary. Now we must insure their legacy—and
this homeplace for hummingbirds—is preserved for
future generations of birds and birders.
Built around 1915, the Paton home is crumbling and must
be rebuilt. Tucson Audubon is conducting a 2017 Capital
Campaign to raise $450,000 so that a new caretaker home can
anchor the Paton Center’s patchwork of rich mini-habitats. With your
help, generations of birders will still spot the Violet-crowned Hummingbird and the
Paton Center will continue to provide tens of thousands of visitors access to the beauty
and magic of Southeast Arizona’s birds.
