Second Annual Wildlife Jamboree

Don't miss the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary's second annual Wildlife Jamboree this coming Saturday June 15 from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. This free family event is for the whole community. It's YWS’s way of saying thank you for your continued support of the animals and their mission. This event has something for everyone. The kids will enjoy all the fun of facepainting, animal tattoos, glitter hair, monster mural coloring, live animal encounters, games, prizes and much, much more.

Wal-Mart, the sponsor, is donating all the food for a picnic dinner, Red Lodge Beverages is donating the soda and Wilcoxsin's is taking care of the ice cream. They'll also have beer and wine for sale. Thanks to The Bank of Red Lodge, Pippi the Clown will dazzle visitors with her fun and tricks throughout the evening. YWS staff will be on hand giving live animal encounters and training demonstrations. Thanks to a generous donation by Clare and her garden ladies, Jeff Troxel and Trever Kreiger will provide music throughout the evening. The Planet 106.7 will be broadcasting live with Kaitlin and Michael… come out and say hello to your favorite radio stars. As if all of this weren't enough they have a raffle with items donated by Clare Witcomb, Red Lodge True Value (a large gas grill), Red Lodge Book & Tea Store, Sylvan Peak, Feast For the Beast tickets and 8 box seat tickets to the Rodeo of Champions on July 2. This is a raffle you'll want to be a part of!

Finally, all of their wonderful animals will be here to welcome you. So mark your calendars and don't miss this fun event.
