Free Winter Family Day

February 12, 2023

11:00AM - 4:00PM

The Wildling Museum is pleased to announce the winter edition of its popular free Family Day event. The now twice-yearly event invites visitors to bring the whole family and enjoy free museum admission during event hours, along with a day of art and nature-inspired activities.

The winter lineup of events will include a live owl meet-and-greet by Santa Barbara Audubon Society’s Eyes in the Sky, a wildlife education program featuring rescued birds of prey. For their 11:00 am presentation at the Wildling’s Free Family Day, visitors will have the chance to meet Puku the Western Screech-owl and Athena the Barn Owl and learn more about the native raptors in our region.

Later in the afternoon, attendees can look forward to an opossum presentation at 1:30 pm by Santa Ynez Valley opossum rehabilitator Dawn Summerlin, who will be bringing along a rescued opossum and teaching visitors about these environmentally beneficial marsupials.

Also available will be art activities inspired by Artist-in-Residence Kerrie Smith’s Portals & Pathways installation, and hands-on activities for all ages.

Event sponsored by the Wood-Claeyssens Foundation.
