Join the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) at the Tipsy Turtle Restaurant and Back Bar on Tuesday, Sept. 7 and Tuesday, Sept. 21 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. for a family friendly night of amazing food in support of native and migratory wildlife.
The night, now happening twice each month, will feature one of CROW’s Animal Ambassadors. The animal ambassador will be out to meet and greet with patrons while CROW’s education staff shares fun facts and information. While diners learn more about wildlife rehabilitation and native wildlife, Tipsy Turtle is generously donating 50 percent of food and beverages purchased during the evening to help wildlife recovering in CROW’s hospital.
The “wild” nights at Tipsy Turtle, located at 1223 Periwinkle Way, will now take place the first and third Tuesday of each month. A different Animal Ambassador will be in attendance for each event. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, CROW relies on donations from the community, funds raised through events, admission to its Visitor Education Center, and foundational grants to treat thousands of animals admitted to its hospital each year.
Want to learn more about CROW? Check out its Visitor Education Center, 3883 Sanibel Captiva Rd. The Center is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. More information can be found online at www.CROWClinic.org.
