he 6th annual San Diego Wildlife Day will be held on Sunday, November 17 from 12 noon to 5 PM at the Project Wildlife Care Facility on Custer Street (from Morena Blvd., turn on Sherman, and turn left on Custer). There is no admission charge.

This celebration of native wildlife will feature tours of the Care Facility, live entertainment, lunch and refreshments. A wildlife-oriented products sale will feature shirts, hats, totes and more. Visitors will be treated to a bake sale and a multi-prize drawing. The Project Wildlife Education Team will be on-hand to answer question and will have lots of Education Animals with them. Other local animal care organizations will have information tables at this salute to native mammals and birds.

"It is important that people learn more about native wildlife," said Lyn Lacye, Project Wildlife's Program Manager. "Our event gives them an opportunity to do just that."
