The 2008 Wildfest will debut "Wildlife Olympics" - a wildlife learning and physical exercise activity for children, as well as offering activities involving archery, surf casting, fishing printing, making casts of wildlife tracks, and learning about red wolves, fire, birds, sea turtles, Native American artifacts, wildlife in John White's day, and much more. Plan now to attend the 2008 Wildfest on Saturday, October 25 from 11-3. Participation is FREE. Live entertainment will occur during the entire event. The Wanchese Lion's Club will provide hamburgers, hotdogs, and other simple food and drink items for a modest charge.
