Join Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center this fall for a series of interactive and fun experiences and classes all while raising money for an incredible cause.
First, enjoy a 4-week series painting class with local artist April Howland where you will learn to paint some of the wild residents. Howland will offer activities and coaching as you work on your pieces. Bring your own art supplies and easels. Sit and relax and become one with your art. All skill levels welcome. Pencil, watercolor, acrylic and oils are all welcome. Artists are encouraged to work on several pieces over the course of each class time as animals are free to roam their cages and cannot be counted on to pose for too long! The series costs $200 and begins October 23rd and will be held every Monday for four weeks.
Then it’s time for a real treat with the fourth annual Howl-O-Ween. Dress up in your favorite costume, bring your kids, and go trick-or-treating among the real wild ones. This is a self-guided adventure with family-friendly surprises around every corner. It takes place on the evening of October 27th from 5-8 pm. This event always sells out, so register quickly!
As the weather cools down, Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center is also starting a fall schedule with more opportunities to sign up for a guided tour. Take a walk around the sanctuary with an experienced guide who can’t wait to share each animal’s story! In addition to our adult residents, we currently provide homes for both a juvenile bobcat and coyote that are exciting to watch as they explore their new world. Come and see them before they grow up!
“We have both day tours and full moon tours. We are a non-profit organization, and our sanctuary animals are fed and taken care of through your tour registrations and donations. We hope to see you soon,” said Nikki Julien, dir. of Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center.
