"The Gardens of Winghaven"

Wing Haven Garden & Bird Sanctuary has been a special part of Charlotte since its creation by Elizabeth and Edwin Clarkson in 1927. The gardens, enclosed on all sides by brick walls, encompass almost three acres in the heart of Charlotte and include lovely vistas, formal gardens, and woodland areas. Throughout, the emphasis is on plantings for birds and other wildlife—providing cover, nesting sites, food, and water. The Clarksons gave the gardens to the Wing Haven Foundation in 1970, and, since that time, its Board of Directors has been responsible for maintaining this lovely spot in keeping with the Clarksons' spirit and intent.

Elizabeth Lawrence was already a recognized garden designer and writer when, in 1948, she moved from Raleigh to Charlotte, NC, and began building the house and making a garden just footsteps away from Wing Haven Gardens and Bird Sanctuary. In 2008 the Wing Haven Foundation purchased the Elizabeth Lawrence House and Garden. Together, the gardens are known as Wing Haven.

Join us for a special presentation, focusing on the history of both gardens, as well as the current and future plans for these two iconic gardens. The program will demonstrate that while the gardens are proximal they are vastly different and complimentary to one another.
