The Arkansas Native Plant & Wildlife Center is recovering from a recent fire on the grounds. It is in urgent need of grain, dog food, and meat. Four Winds Trading Post, located at 616 Mena Street, Mena, Arkansas, next to Skyline Café, will be opening their doors to hold a fundraiser for the Wildlife Center on Saturday, February 21st, from noon to 4 p.m.
Tommy will have several of his birds of prey in the shop. Stop by, visit, and make a $20.00 donation to get your picture made holding the bird of your choice. This is a great chance to help the Center and a once in a lifetime opportunity to get your picture with a bird of prey.
After hearing of the Center’s needs, falconers from near and far will be coming in to support the cause. This will be a unique opportunity to view their rare and exotic birds from across the world; please don’t miss it.
If you can’t make it to Four Winds Trading Post on Saturday and would still like to make a much needed donation, you can make your tax deductible donation out to Arkansas Native Plant & Wildlife Center and mail them to Tommy Young at 3107 Westmoreland Drive, Mena, Arkansas, 71953.
If you would like to donate grain, dog food, or meat, you can stop in at the Farmers Co-Op located at 318 Hwy 71 N., Mena, Arkansas. Make the purchase of your choice and have it credited to the Arkansas Native Plant & Wildlife Center or Tommy Young.
Your help is deeply appreciated and don’t forget, 100% of your donation is going to feed the wildlife at the Center. For more information, call Lyn Dilbeck at 479-243-0713.
