LAKE REGION - The 32nd Annual Audubon Wildlife Art & Craft Festival is planned Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23, in the Wallenpaupack Elementary and Middle School Complex. The event is described as an educational opportunity to experience firsthand many of nature's mysteries.

Featuring continuous presentations of live animals by some of the top wildlife experts in the Northeast, it is a way for all members of the family to experience up close their wildlife neighbors, and to learn all about them.

Over 80 of the Nation’s finest wildlife and nature artists and craftsmen will be exhibiting and selling their work, much of it wildlife and nature oriented.

The festival is sponsored by the NorthEast PA Audubon Society, and it is a non-profit event. Much of its proceeds go to support two wetlands in Wayne County, scholarships, and environmental educational materials.

Wallenpaupack Elementary and Middle School Complex is located at the end of Atlantic Avenue, just off of Rt 6 east of Hawley. Visit their website at www.audubonfestival.com.
