Come support your local community on Black Friday with our soft opening of Center for Wildlife's Holiday Bazaar! Bring family and friends up to the place that you love, or visit for the first time! One of our favorite events of the year, we invite you to step through the doors of our magical shop in the forest. Participants can browse nature-inspired gifts like wild-crafted hemlock wreaths, wildlife holiday cards, wildlife baby blankets, Ambassador Series books, photographs of nature, goats milk soap from Jenness Farm, and much more. Participants will also get the chance to meet our owl, hawk, falcon, and other ambassadors up-close, tour their outdoor enclosures, and support the Center while doing their holiday shopping!
