Located at the base of Arabia Mountain, AWARE works year-round to heal and rehabilitate injured and orphaned animals. When animals cannot be released back into the wild, AWARE makes sure that the animals are placed in a good, safe home in a wildlife center elsewhere, or makes room for the animal to stay at AWARE itself. Some of these “ambassador animals” – including Owlscar the Grouch (pictured), will be present at the Wild Night OutSIDE event, letting guests see the animals closeup and educating them about the many wild animals that call Georgia home.
Raffle and auction items also will be available at the event and more event details will be forthcoming. The event will take place as an outdoor picnic in order to ensure COVID-19 safety. Visit awarewildlife.org/wildnightoutside to learn more about the event, or go straight to buy your ticket here.
