Audubon Society hosts A Night in the Woods

| Sunday, June 26, 2011

The Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania didn't have to try very hard to ensure the swells flew the coop on Saturday, trading Downtown for downtime during A Night in the Woods.

Held at the Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve in Fox Chapel, co-chairs Patty Casey and Lucila Andrich circulated among the likes of Jen Zaltman, Eustace and Shelley Uku, Jackie Dixon, AWSP executive director Jim and Leslie Bonner, Dayton Baker, and Dan and Nancy Fales.

On the fashion front, most of the ladies traded stilettos for flip-flops or wedge heels in order to successfully enjoy an evening of navigating without aerating, and three cheers for the daring fashionistas who arrived in towering 5-inch-plus high kicks.

"When they have a platform, you can run in them!" laughed Victoria Verstraeten.

With more than 134 acres to play on, we were waiting to hear whether one too many Hooootini's ensured at least some shenanigans, although as far as we can tell, just a fabulous night enjoyed under the suburban skies.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
