Imagine a warm fall evening filled with the lilting sound of a hammered dulcimer; the aroma of enticing hors d’oeuvres and desserts and the rich, velvety taste of an aged red wine, as you stroll through the beautiful nursery grounds.

The sixth annual “Where the Wild Things Are – Celebration and Benefit” for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release will be held 6-9 p.m. Sept. 10 at Prospector’s Nursery in Nevada City, where volunteers from Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release will enjoy wines, delectable appetizers, music, art, silent auction, raffle, alongside Wildlife Ambassadors.

Three Times Through, a local band with toe-tapping instrumentals, will play throughout the evening, featuring 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 delicious complimentary hors d’oeuvres and desserts. A raffle and silent auction will feature entertainment tickets, a weekend’s stay near Lake Tahoe, wildlife themed art, nature appreciation baskets and much more.

Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release’s Wildlife Ambassadors including a great horned owl, a Western screech-owl, an American crow, and a barn owl, will be circulating throughout the evening. The 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 $35 for one or $60 for two (or $40 per ticket at the door) and include a goodie bag filled with a complimentary wine glass, drink ticket, raffle ticket, and other surprises.

All money raised at this event provides for the needs of orphaned and injured native wildlife and their release back into the wild.
