ROSE EXPOSED brings audience and artists together to support our community, with all proceeds benefiting a local non-profit. In 2014, ROSE EXPOSED: HOME, raised $5,000 for The Road Home. In 2015, ROSE EXPOSED: DREAMERS, raised $5,000 for Art Access's Dreamers Project. 2016 brings ROSE EXPOSED: FLIGHT, benefiting Tracy Aviary.
Tracy Aviary connects people to nature with numerous exhibits that allow guests to get nose-to-beak with birds from diverse environments, local and afar. The newly opened Treasures of the Rainforest exhibit is a large, indoor free-flight aviary where more than two dozen tropical birds fly among hundreds of plants creating a jungle experience in the heart of Salt Lake. The wetlands experience allows guest to wander a boardwalk, shared by black-necked stilts, over open water while white-faced ibis, coots and other native birds search for grubs. Tracy Aviary boasts numerous new exhibits, an amazing bird show, and a landscape that combine to deliver the organization’s mission.
Recognizing that not all citizens can make it to Tracy Aviary, they are expanding into the community with citizen science and Nature in the City programs. Citizen science relies on volunteers to help collect data that is used to assist land managers make wise decisions. Nature in the City helps residents better understand the nature that exists in their community by offering experiential educational activities in parks and open spaces throughout the Salt Lake Valley.
