Imagine a warm summer evening filled with the sound of a hammered dulcimer and mandolin; the rich, velvety taste of zinfandel wine; and the aroma of enticing hors d'oeuvres and desserts combined with the majestic beauty of birds of prey. The fourth annual, "Where the Wild Things Are – Celebration and Benefit" for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release will be held at Prospector Nursery in Nevada City on Sept. 6. Join the volunteers from Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release for an evening combining wines, nibbles, music, art, silent auction and the Wildlife Ambassadors themselves.
The local band Three Times Through, with their lively toe-tapping instrumentals, 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 be pouring several of their award-winning wines accompanied by 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.
Advance tickets are $30 for one or $50 for two (or $35 per ticket at the door) and include a goodie bag filled with a complimentary wine glass and drink ticket, raffle ticket and other surprises. Tickets can be purchased the night of the event or at Lucchesi Winery, Prospector Nursery, Briar Patch or WRR Intake Center.
All money raised at this event provides for the needs of orphaned and injured native wildlife and their release back into the wild.
