"SWEETHEARTS BIRDS & BREW" EVENT
AUBURN - JANUARY 31, 2017 - Lovebirds looking for a place to celebrate Valentine's Day are in for a "wild" night at Gold Country Wildlife Rescue's Sweethearts Birds & Brew event.
The event is taking place on Saturday, February 11, from 3 - 9 pm at Knee Deep Brewing Company in Auburn.
Attendees will be able to meet-and-greet native wildlife, enjoy food and beverages from local businesses, and purchase a treat for their sweetie.
This will be the second "Birds & Brew" event held at Knee Deep's taproom on New Airport Road. The first event took place in November, and was a huge success, raising $4,000 for the non-profit organization. "We're honored to have Gold Country Wildlife Rescue return; they are an important part of our community," said taproom manager Spenser Mena.
Gold Country Wildlife Rescue Board Member and raptor expert, Greg Grimm, will be attending the event as one of several animal handlers. "The birds we'll be presenting we refer to as 'wildlife ambassadors'," explained Grimm. "These owls, hawks, falcons, and other birds are all non-releasable. For example, our great-horned owl ambassador named Bella will be featured; she was kidnapped from a nest and raised by humans before being confiscated by Fish and Wildlife. She never learned to hunt and she can't survive on her own in the wild."
In addition to meeting the wildlife ambassadors, attendees will be able to purchase animal-inspired chocolates, spa packages, and merchandise; pizza will be available from the Bella Familia food truck.
The fundraiser comes soon after big news for the 26-year old non-profit organization. In January, the Placer County Board of Supervisors authorized a lease agreement allowing Gold Country Wildlife Rescue to occupy the County's former animal shelter in Auburn.
