Saturday, Aug. 27 in Dayton/Sheridan
The Wyoming Wildlife Federation (WWF), Wyoming Game and Fish Department (G&F) and the Bighorn Audubon Society have teamed up to offer the public a day in the field watching and learning about wildlife.
That evening, please join us back in Sheridan to celebrate Wyoming’s wildlife at a special WWF Wine Event with speakers, music and a silent auction at Western Wineries (details below).
Wildlife Tour and Talk: Meet us at 9 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 27 at the Tongue River Valley Community Center in Dayton (1100 US Hwy 14, click here for Google Map). Bring your own lunch!
Join us in the field to tour Amsden Creek Wildlife Habitat Management Area and Tongue River Canyon, near Dayton. G&F and WWF wildlife experts will be on hand to discuss the species that inhabit the area as well as the importance of succulent forage for big game animals. A recent wildfire in the canyon will serve as the backdrop for a discussion on how fire is important for creating nutritious forage for wildlife browsers.
Bring your binoculars! Representatives of the Bighorn Audubon Society will provide us with some birding opportunities, including tips on what clues to look for, bird calls, and species identification based on habitat type.
WWF’s Celebrate Wildlife – Wine and Cheese Event:
That evening, please join us back in Sheridan to celebrate Wyoming’s wildlife, with wildlife speakers, music and a silent auction. Party starts at 5:30 p.m! Weston Wineries will produce a red and white varietal with custom labels for this fundraising event. See you there, Weston Wineries, 122 N. Main St., Sheridan.
Weston Wineries Tasting Notes:
Red Blend – Our original Red Blend, released November 2014, is a blend of two Old Vine Zinfandels from different California vineyards. This is a very earthy, dark red blend with an aroma of cherries and has a moderately dry, but smooth finish. Although this blend has a nice weight, you will notice it is lightly tannic.
White Blend – Our original White Blend, released November 2014, is a 80% Chardonnay (Sonoma) and 20% Pinot Grigio (Lodi). We lightly filter and do not add additional classifiers to this blend to make it a one of a kind, not to sweet, not too dry “gulpable” wine.
Please send an RSVP for both wildlife tour and wine event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
