The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah is hosting its 3rd Annual Wildlife Baby Shower/Open House fundraiser this weekend.

The event opened Friday at the center’s facilities in Ogden at 1490 Park Blvd. and continues 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

A silent auction, games, crafts, and fun activities will entertain while knowledgeable handlers use education birds to teach and answer questions about Utah’s native wildlife.

The event is free to the public, but the center is asking for “shower gifts” ranging from monetary donations to in-kind donations of items from its “needs list.” All donations are tax deductible as charitable contributions.

For more information on the wildlife rehabilitation center, the “needs list” and donating, go to www.wrcnu.org.
