If you were trying to find some fun, free events to bring your kiddos to this summer, Hoo Haven Wildlife might have what you're looking for!

I remember going on field trips when I was in elementary school to wildlife centers.  Seriously, there were always a bunch of owls we'd get to interact with which I thought was one of the coolest things ever. Well, at Hoo Haven's free event this Thursday, you'll be able to spot some gorgeous owls!

This Thursday, July 14th from 5-7pm at Hoo Haven Wildlife is hosting a free ice cream social where you can take self-guided tours and visit their beautiful animals.

It's supposed to be beautiful weather on Thursday, so get some dinner before you go and head out to the ice cream social to get dessert on them!



Hoo Haven Wildlife is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to rehabilitating and releasing, sick, injured, and orphaned North American Wildlife and to educating individuals about the importance of wildlife conservation.


Not only do you get free ice cream and visiting hours, but there will be a campfire for kids and a story time to end the night!
