FledgeFest 2017 Open House - Saturday, July 8, 2017, 2 PM - 6 PM

The Host is David Hancock and Hancock Wildlife Foundation. David and his Sandhill Cranes etc. welcome you to his home and aviaries.

We call this an Open House, or FledgeFest 2017, as it is timed to coincide with our eaglets fledging in all of our nests, not just one in particular. It gives us a chance to meet you and thank you for your support.

To all our Hancock Wildlife Foundation friends and members, mutual supporters, people we know personally and those who just occasionally watch our cams or "lurk" our discussion forums or are associated with any of the conservation projects so dear to David's heart, are all welcome. If you know us or our eagles from our cams, website or other sites, associated TV or community projects, we want you here to celebrate wildlife.

The "Open House", hopefully yard and bird pens weather permitting, will be informal with people coming and going during the day from 2 PM - 6 PM. David does have a number of buildings, from the house to various storage barns available for undercover gatherings if weather necessitates.

David will provide some food and drink. We have convinced David to gladly accept local attendees bringing additional plates of "finger food" and/or their drinks so we greatly appreciate that contribution. The RSVP is very important as we need to know how many are coming and who is bringing what? Will there be 25 or 100 guests?

If you are planning to attend it is imperative that you email [email protected] and let her know. Karen will give you the address and make up the guest list.

FledgeFest has traditionally been considered a fundraiser for HWF. Our 'DONATIONS BOX' will be on the table where you will check in and receive your name tag. In addition there will be a SILENT AUCTION of various items donated to HWF for that purpose.

Thanks and we look forward to greeting old and meeting new friends.

P.S. Perhaps someone can coordinate pickups from Vancouver Island to save the vehicle ferry costs. Of course this will depend on enough mainland volunteers to pick up people coming from Vancouver Island.
