Last year, Autrey Mill Nature Preserve celebrated spring and Earth Day with Wild About Autrey Mill, an evening fundraiser filled with entertainment, food and drink. Wild About Autrey Mill returns on Saturday April 20th, 2019 and we encourage you, our supporters, to join us.
We hope that you will join us in celebrating “Butterflies, Botanicals, and All Things Wild About Autrey Mill” within our beautiful 46-acre nature preserve! It will be a light-hearted evening featuring a wide variety of local food and beverages, entertainment including a live band, a silent auction and much more. A limited number of tickets will be available for $30 per person. Ticket price includes entry to the event, dinner & desserts from local establishments, and an assortment of beverages including two beer/wine drinks. A cash bar will be available for additional beer and wine. Funds raised by the event will enable our non-profit to expand programming and services, expand the education in our soon-to-be-remodeled farm museum, add animal ambassadors to our collection, and more.
Please join us and come out and have a wild time!
