Wildwoods is a 501(c)3 non-profit wildlife rehabilitation organization in Duluth. We serve as a resource for people who find orphaned, sick, or injured wild animals, and take in over 1250 animals each year, with the goal of returning them to health and releasing them back to the wild. We also offer community programs that promote peaceful coexistence with our wild neighbors, as well as easy, non-violent solutions to human/wildlife conflict. All funds raised from this event will go directly toward the cost of caring for our wildlife in need.
