Wine & Wild Things

For 17 years this one-of-a-kind fundraiser has been a favourite summertime event in Vernon. 

Allan Brooks Nature Centre’s 'Wine and Wild Things' fundraiser returns on June 23.

The event features live birds of prey with 'The Raptors and The Bug Guys with their Reptiles' all while sipping on local wines, mouth-watering appetizers and handmade desserts.

“We’re having a lot of fun connecting kids and the kid in each of us, with nature in the Okanagan," said Aaron Deans, Allan Brooks Nature Centre, executive director. "This important fundraiser helps support our continued delivery of youth and family-focused nature educational programming."

"We are also aiming to raise funds to construct aviaries on-site at Allan Brooks to enhance public’s access and close up experience with raptors."

This year's event will take place at Lone Pine Ranch and Events Centre, while attendees enjoy live music around the campfire by musician Rob Dinwoodie.

“We are thrilled with the new location," said Vicki Proulx, events and communications coordinator at ABNC. “Lone Pine Ranch offers us a spectacular outdoor space allowing guests to have a true hands-on nature experience.”

Tickets go on sale April 23 at 9 a.m. through the Allan Brooks Nature Centre website.
