Update on Spring Banquet

We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are in good health during this time of uncertainty.  Due to the health safety concerns in light of the COVID-19 virus, the Wildlife In Need Center (WINC) decided to cancel the event which had been scheduled for Saturday, April 25th.

We are so disappointed that we will not be able to celebrate “Caring for our Wisconsin Wildlife” in person and share our many success stories with you in person – BUT INSTEAD WE WILL BE COMING TO YOU LIVE!
