American Artisans will be hosting their 2nd annual fund raising dinner to benefit the Arkansas Native Plant and Wildlife Center, which is directed by Tommy Young, Master Falconer and Animal Rehabilitator. Please join us on Saturday, May 28 from 6 to 8 pm for a dinner featuring a pulled pork sandwich with sides, drinks and a dessert. The cost of the meal is a donation.
Spring and summer are the busiest times of year at the Wildlife Center. Orphaned and injured animals are pouring into the center daily and Young says the numbers will double every two weeks till the end of summer. The need for generous assistance to help feed the animals is especially critical right now.
Young will attend the dinner and will be sharing some of his animal experiences. One of the topics Tommy is sure to cover is how last year’s baby otter has grown and how he can help teach the newest baby otter who arrived this spring.
The Center does not have any local, state, or federal funding. It relies solely on the public for donations so organizers encourage the public to attend to offer financial support to the Center. The Arkansas Native Plant & Wildlife Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
