What We Do

Located in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina, Wing Haven provides a natural oasis for reflection and study of its three public gardens. Wing Haven Garden & Bird Sanctuary is rich in Southern horticulture and a habitat for birds and wildlife. As a sanctuary for birds, Wing Haven Garden & Bird Sanctuary is an excellent example of the value of and need for conserving wildlife, its habitat and natural resources in an urban setting. The garden has recorded over 150 different species of birds in its nearly 100-year history. The Elizabeth Lawrence House & Garden is the site of a world-renowned garden writer’s living laboratory. The Elizabeth Lawrence House & Garden is a botanist's dream with nearly 2,000 taxa in its documented living collections, some experimental and many original. The SEED Wildlife & Children’s Gardens offer an up-close opportunity for bird observation and includes a more hands-on approach to outdoor learning. All of Wing Haven's properties are excellent examples of different garden designs and showcase a variety of plant material. Together, these gardens welcome visitors of all ages to discover and learn. Wing Haven also offers more than 40 programs and special events each year.
