Kathy Neff, the GSC's VP of Development, shared, "Wings and Wild Things is our signature spring fundraising event where we will be celebrating two new exhibits opening later this spring, The Cole Family Monarch Conservation Center and Butterfly House and the Amazing Butterflies traveling exhibit. Along with previewing these new exhibits, attendees will have the unique opportunity to engage with some of our ambassador animals and their keepers."

In addition to sneak previews, guests will be invited to stroll through the zoo, listen to live music by Runaway Ostrich and engage with performers from Paper Hand Puppet Intervention. Appetizers will be provided by Pepper Moon Catering and an assortment of beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be available.

"Proceeds from Wings and Wild Things will allow us to continue to build on our science-focused vision. Your sponsorship will support animal care, educational programs and wildlife conservation initiatives, allowing the Greensboro Science Center to grow to be top 5 science destination in NC. Thank you for believing in the GSC as we inspire "scientists" both young and old to appreciate the wonders of our natural world," Neff said.
