THE 3RD ANNUAL INVASIVE SPECIES HOG ROAST
Saturday, April 5th 6-9pm at Flinchum's Phoenix
Flinchum's Phoenix, Phoenix Road, Athens, GA
We would like your help in making our upcoming fundraising event a success! We are in the midst of planning our annual Invasive Species Hog Roast & Art Show set for April 5, 2014. The highlight of this event is a dinner consisting of local invasive and non-native food items, such as hog and kudzu (Yes! You can eat kudzu). Guests will have the opportunity to learn about the dishes they eat and how these species impact our local ecosystems. Our art show will feature "nature" themed works of art by students and local artists.
Funds generated from this event will serve two purposes. A portion of the proceeds will go to our Chapter to support our endeavors in educational outreach and local conservation efforts in Georgia. We will also be donating event proceeds to the Prairie Wildlife Research. PWR was established in 2001 as a non-profit organization with the mission to research and conserve wildlife species of the prairie and their associated habitats.
