The fourth annual, “Where the Wild Things Are — Celebration and Benefit” for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 6 at Prospector Nursery in Nevada City. Join the volunteers from Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release for the summer evening, which combines wines, nibbles, music, art, silent auction, and the Wildlife Ambassadors themselves.
The local band, Three Times Through, will play throughout the evening. Featured instruments include the hammered dulcimer, harp, fiddle, mandolin, concertina, bouzouki and guitar in their tradition-based music of Ireland, Scotland, and America.
Lucchesi Winery will pour several of their award-winning wines accompanied by complimentary hors d’oeuvres and desserts. A raffle and silent auction will feature entertainment tickets, wildlife-themed art, nature appreciation baskets and much more.
Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release’s Education Ambassadors including a great horned owl, an American kestrel, a western screech owl, a barn owl, and a Harris hawk will be circulating throughout the evening. These spectacular birds travel to various events and classrooms, capturing the hearts of all who meet them with their natural beauty, calm demeanor and educational messages, according to the organization.
