The Inspiration for Flight Plan: The Birds of Sunnylands.
In the 1960's, Walter and Leonore Annenberg built Sunnylands, their winter home in Rancho Mirage. Today the public can visit the original historic estate and Sunnylands Center & Gardens, a visitor center that is open for free, Wednesdays through Sundays, from September through May.
Using new photography taken by National Geographic photographer Tim Laman, this exhibition features many of the birds that reside throughout the Coachella Valley or touch down along their migratory route. Over 145 species have been identified at Sunnylands and a selection are included in this exhibition. With an artistic eye he photographed the birds in their natural habitat, resulting in arresting images that highlight bird behavior.
The CVHM Campus is a unique and historical sight capable of hosting events from the most intimate of gatherings to a business retreat to a gala where each of your guests will leave with a memorable experience!

Often Women have had to fight or go against the social norms of the day to dream the impossible, and, through their grit, they have made extraordinary things happen. This exhibit is devoted to the women who have braved the heat and dust in the forlorn desert outpost of the Coachella Valley region of California right up to the women of today who continue to brave the unknown in their pursuit of a better life for all who live here. These are the women who work hard to do good things. These are the women we honor.
Exhibit Now Open in the Smiley-Tyler House.
