Extract from the Tribune staff reports
ATALLA, Alabama – Tigers for Tomorrow is holding a pumpkin sweepstakes every weekend at 2 p.m. October 9 through November 28 at the MolJac Bear Wolf Education Pavilion. Join the staff and volunteers to provide the animals of the reserve with lots of fun enrichments and pumpkin tossing.
Go on an adventure and embrace the spirit of the fall season by making scarecrows for animals to engage with in our wild workshop. The âScarecrows for Animalsâ wild enrichment workshop begins October 9 from 11 am to 2:30 pm It’s $ 40 for adults and for children 4 to 11 it’s $ 35. Buy your “Scarecrows for animals” on tigrespourdemain.org
Together, we will make scarecrows that the animals can have fun with in complete safety. It will be a great way to enrich their day with some fall fun. We will provide all the supplies. However, if you would like to donate clothing for your scarecrow, that would be appreciated. Not to mention, it’s a great way to recycle / reuse old clothes; they love old denim jeans.
After a bit of artful fun, we’ll take a lunch break in our lodge, followed by a tour of the reserve. You will be able to see some of the animals receiving the scarecrows that we created, and you will be with us for the first pumpkin throw. It will definitely be a sight to see! Be sure to reserve your spot on our website by purchasing your tickets for this wild and decadent workshop.
