Since today is my shift at the Bird Center, it seems like a good time to remind everyone about the For The Birds auction this Friday at the Hilton hotel. Tickets are available through the office or go to the website http://www.birdtlc.net/ and get a ticket online. If you don’t live near here, you can always make a donation even if you can’t come to the auction. And remember, we ALWAYS can use salmon and red meat. Nothing processed, please. Has to be raw. And no halibut. But I know Alaskans are starting to empty freezers out as the next hunting and fishing season approaches, so keep us in mind for what you’re discarding from past years. We have a big box in front of our facility for you to drop the stuff into even if we’re not there. Thanks.
