Blackbrook Audubon is selling raffle tickets to support the purchase of Audubon Adventures, a conservation publication for third to fifth grade classes in Geauga and Lake Counties. The raffle prize is a 15″x19″ quilted wall hanging of an iconic Red Oak at Gully Brook Park in Willoughby. The tree is over 200 years old. Despite having a massive hole, the oak continues to leaf out and produce acorns. The wall hanging was made and donated by a local artist.
Tickets cost $5 each and can be purchased at Blackbrook program meetings on the third Tuesday of each month and at field trips and walks. The March 19th and April 16th meetings will be held at 7:00 p.m. at Penitentiary Glen. Visit Blackbrook Audubon Society or Blackbrook Audubon Society’s Facebook page for details on these venues. The drawing will be held Sunday morning, May 19th at Blackbrook’s annual Big Sit at Headlands Dunes State Nature Preserve. Winner need not be present to win.
