Vote for Wild at Heart in Project Impact - March 3-18th

VOTE for Wild at Heart in Project Impact, a Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury initiative! From March 3-18th, you can vote for Wild at Heart at any Greater Sudbury Public Library branches, or online:

Wild at Heart gave a 90-second presentation about the project at the Project Impact Community Celebration on Saturday, March 3rd. You can watch it here.

As Wild at Heart continues to expand our education outreach programming, we are looking to offer free day camps to the community. From August 13-15th, we will be hosting day camps for students ages 6-12, focusing on environmental issues like wildlife-human conflict, water pollution, and pollinators and native plants, as well as a field trip to Walden Animal Hospital to learn about their partnership with Wild at Heart.

By removing the cost of admission for these camps, all students will have the opportunity to attend. Students will learn first-hand about local environmental issues, and how they can make a positive difference in their community. This will also raise awareness about Wild at Heart, and let people know where they can bring an injured, orphaned, or sick wild animal.

We need YOUR support to make this 3-day summer day camp possible! Make sure to vote in-person, or online.

Check out Wild at Heart’s Facebook event here (great for reminding you to vote!). Thank you to the Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury for hosting this great, local initiative.
