O Come, All Ye Faithful

Greetings From Wenonah!

We just wanted to let you know that East Coast Vulture Festival 2010
is right around the corner
Saturday, March 6th!

In its 5th year, this annual event
— celebrating a very strange looking bird —
 is the only thing like it on the East Coast!

The  Festival is in two parts.
First is a free of charge Vulture Day Children's Fair 
at the Wenonah Community Center
 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Featuring live birds and other animals presented by naturalists from Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, the fair also includes crafts, games, nature talks, displays and guided walks to the roost.

The Festival finishes with the "Evening Roost"
  at the Wenonah Elementary School
 6:30 - 10:00 p.m.

“Animals With Bad Reputations” featuring live animals will be presented by
The Academy of Natural Sciences.
 One Heart, a drumming group will present traditional American Indian songs,
dances and stories.
 Music and an original vulture skit round out the Evening Roost.
Fruit salad, elegant deserts and beverages will be served.

The evening event is a fund raiser to support Environmental Education in our schools.
VEE (Vulture Environmental Education) Grants
 are awarded to local teachers for  environmental programs in their schools and classrooms.

Tickets for the Evening Roost must be ordered in advance.
The cost is $18 for adults and $10 for children.
