Flight to Freedom Celebration

Submitted By Wendy Winsted

Come celebrate the release of two Great Horned Owls as they spread their wings for their very first flight back into the wild. These two young owlets were brought to the Sulphur Creek Nature Center when they were just tiny balls of taloned fluff. Over the past few months they have grown, acquired all their flight feathers and have mastered the art of catching food on their own.

On Saturday, August 25, Sulphur Creek will be celebrating this magical release through a fundraiser to support the rehabilitation work for the over 800 wild animals that they take in each year. Join in for a delightful evening of wine, beer, great food, and live owls, all under the majestic oaks of Sulphur Creek Nature Center. The highlight of the evening will be the release of the owls as they take their first "flight to freedom." To help celebrate this milestone will be live music by Hugh and the Hefners, behind the scene tours, and live animal appearances. Contributors include Buffalo Bill's Brew Pub, Owl Ridge Wines, Ravenswood Winery, Thomas Coyne Winery, Westover Vineyards, and Phoenix Glass.

Tickets are $70 a person. For more information call (510) 881-6747. Tickets are going fast, so get yours now! Must be 21 to attend.
