"Get Wild" To Benefit The Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons, August 21, 2010.
August 21, 2010. Southampton, N.Y. The Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons benefit was held at a beautiful private residence in Southampton today. Marcy Warren did a great job rallying people, including Beth Ostrasky Stern, animal rescue advocate, and Avis Richards to support this worthwhile event. Activities included face painting, live music, a magic show, arts and crafts, a silent auction, and games. LaSmooch.com was there with a van filled with ladies clothes. The most compelling attraction was the live animals who have been rescued by the center. We met an owl, hawk, falcon, snake and other animals that traveled to the event with volunteers trained by the center. I learned that we currently have a bald eagle nesting in West Hampton.
The Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons opened its doors to the public in June of 2000 and is located between Hampton Bays and Quogue. It has a fully operational wildlife hospital and examination room along with housing for patients who are recuperating. There are aviary, reptile and mammal complexes, large water bird enclosures with flushing swimming pools and many volunteers. To learn more go to http://www.wildliferescuecenter.org.
