A percentage of the ticket sales at the gate will go to help support Advocates for Children, a local non-profit organization that trains CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) volunteers to advocate for abused or neglected children who are involved in legal proceedings. CASA volunteers work to ensure that these children are given safe, permanent homes.


Kathy Hersey will be at the Festival both Saturday and Sunday. She will give presentations on wildlife and the work of Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators. She will also bring animals or birds for exhibit. Every year, an increasing number of wild animals are hit by cars, collide with buildings, and are electrocuted, poisoned, caught by pet cats, and suffer all sorts of civilization-related ills.

Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators, Inc is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation dedicated to providing medical care, educational programs, and information about living with our native wildlife. Utopia Wildlife Rehabilitators is a Volunteer agency. If you would like to help by volunteering or by making a donation, contact them through their website.
