Where: Wild Birds Unlimited, 119 Neal Street, Grass Valley

Wild Birds Unlimited is partnering with Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release for the fifth annual wildlife-themed shopping and customer appreciation day, “Owl Be Home for Christmas” on Saturday, according to a release.
Purchasing a 2019 annual Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release membership for $35 will earn customers $15 worth of “bird bucks,” a gift from Wild Birds Unlimited, to spend on store merchandise that day.
“Once again we are excited to partner with Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release and pleased to support their cause,” Mary Ann Kirk, owner of Wild Birds Unlimited, said in the release. “Both organizations have similar missions — to encourage the health and well-being of our native birds and wildlife. We help birds survive our cold winters by offering quality bird seed, high in protein and fat as well many more items of interest to the backyard birder and nature enthusiast.
“A beautiful winter scene backdrop will enable customers to take photos of the ‘Owl Ambassadors’ with their own cameras or cell phones.”
Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release President Bev Myers said the event is festive and fun while driving membership for her organization.
“If there are people on your Christmas list that are into bird feeding, this is a great way to complete your shopping at Wild Birds Unlimited and support WR&R at the same time,” Myers said. “All donations go to caring for injured or orphaned native wildlife.”
“Owl Ambassadors” including a barn owl, western screech-owl and great horned owl will be on hand to greet shoppers as they enter the store or pose for photos.
