Please join us Saturday, November 12, 2011 at Rikki’s Refuge for
Noon - Refuge Tour
2 pm - Nature Hike
5 pm - Sunset Bonfire & Veggies on the Grill
7 pm - Full Moon Walk
$28 per person (minimum donation), for the full day or any part of the day!  All donations go towards the Wildlife Defense Fund.

In addition to the 1300 domestic and farm animals we care for every day, we protect 300 acres of pristine nature, woods and wetlands, for Native Virginia Wildlife. It’s a hard job, as development encroaches, large tracts are logged, hunters poach. This spring an adjoining landowner wanted to build a logging road, meandering a mile and a half thru the woods and wetlands of Rikki’s Refuge. We fought, and we saved the land and the lives of countless animals that call it home.  The resulting survey and legal bill is a devastating $28,976.16, at a time when we’re finding it difficult to cover the daily expenses for our 1300 resident animals; their medical bills, their food, their care.  Would you please give a tax-deductible donation of just $28 to help the animals?
