10th annual Pints and Predators
February 24 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join your local wildlife rehabilitation community at First Magnitude Brewing Company for the 10th Annual Pints and Predators educational festival and fundraiser featuring live birds of prey, creatures of the night, and more! This year’s event is dedicated to the legacy of Nan Soistman. Nan was a founding partner of Pints and Predators and was the founder and president of Sunrise Wildlife Rehabilitation. “Stay Wild” was her call to action, and thus the name of the beer brewed especially for the 10th annual Pints and Predators.
Wildlife rehabilitators do the hard work of rescuing sick and injured wildlife. Many of those birds and other animals live through their trauma but are not healthy enough to be released back into natural environments and become educational ambassadors that rehabilitators and educators care for indefinitely. Pints and Predators is an opportunity for you to see ambassador birds of prey like Great Horned Owl, Barred Owl, Red-shouldered Hawk, American Kestrel and creatures of the night like Virginia Opossum and bats. There are always a few snakes including a venomous rattlesnake in a fully-locked safety enclosure and a spider exhibit!
