The Wine and Wild West gala was a real 'hoot'in Ho Down for all that attended, including Elton the Spectacled Owl and the cowboys of the Wild Wild West. With activities captivating the Western theme, there were a few 'Bukaroos or Charro's and Night Wranglers' that might have got a little wild, and it wasn't the goats, snakes or birds on hand!
An event like this doesn't happen without the generosity of the community. The ABNC team thank all those that attended.
Allan Brooks Nature Centre would like to thank the sponsors that helped make this event a success.
- Fraser Barker Advisory Group of Aligned Capital Partners Inc
- Liquor Warehouse

To all that attended and sponsored.

- We can continue to engaging kids in nature, teaching about the local environment and conservation, a critical aspect of a child's education.
At Allan Brooks Nature Centre, our goal is to connect people of all ages to nature, but most importantly children, through both education and the simple opportunity to experience it, that they may not have elsewhere.
Thanks to you, we have the opportunity to create these experiences for over 5,000 kids in the coming year.
We could not do this with your support, so again, thank you!
