Pickering Creek Audubon Center will host its tenth Tour, Toast & Taste event along the shores of Trippe Creek in the beautiful 19th century Harleigh Estate.

Passing through the ornate gates and down the lane to the elegant 19th century manor house of Mr. and Mrs. John E. Akridge III, guests will check in, and enter the home to learn about the history of the home and some of its special features and stories from docents and our host. Guests will exit the house to enjoy delectable wines and delicious hors d’ouevres under the tent, live music and bidding on on a wide variety of intriguing dinners, unique events and auction items offered by community leaders who support Pickering Creek Audubon Center's efforts on the Mid-Shore to connect people with nature.

Harleigh is all about the land—preservation and conservation. A number of major restorations and additions have been made since the owners purchased the farm in the early 1980s, including adding more land for conservation, installing formal gardens, a pergola and terraces, geothermal air handling wells, a north wing to offset that to the south, and a new art studio. A must see home!

Tickets WILL NOT be sold at the door.
