Thank you for a successful Frosty Family Fun Night & Gambler's Promotion!

A big thank you to everyone for great success at our Frosty Family Fun Night on Saturday, February 6th! Over 400 people experienced beautiful night hikes, a night tour of our new waterfalls, great music with Good News, yummy s'mores, chocolate dipping, and treats, and fun crafts, including hanging "Cheerio" garland for the Wildlife Sanctuary birds to snack on! All of our Animal Ambassadors loved seeing so many people all night. A big thanks to all of our volunteers for helping us out. We hope to see you next year on Saturday, February 5th, 2011!

Another big thank you to all of you for supporting the Green Bay Gamblers Bat Promotion. With your help, the Gamblers presented us with a check for $1,650! This money will be used to help many, many orphaned and injured wildlife, including bats, to get back into the wild. We look forward to working with the Gamblers in the future-- what a great organization!

Have a great day-- enjoy the beautiful winter weather!
