Tomorrow is our way of helping the Wildlife Center of Virginia. But, it’s also my way of thanking you … for your support and for being part of the Peaceful Hands family. Whether I see you once a week … once a year … or if you’re just dropping in for the very first time … I’m delighted to have you join us.

Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I can’t make it to the Open House, but I want to help … what can I do?

A: Make an online donation. Visit the Center at wildlifecenter.org and click the “Donate” button in the upper right corner. Click the option “make a general gift.” When you “check out” you’ll have the opportunity to include a note. Let them know that you’re supporting the “Peaceful Hands” project. If you do, you’ll receive a special little thank you from me!

And, thank you to those who have already donated!

Q: What if I can’t come to the Yoga Class?

A: Just come to the Open House!

Q: I’m not a student at Peaceful Hands (or I haven’t been around for awhile), can I come anyway?

A: Would you like to help the Wildlife Center? If your answer is “yes” then you’re definitely “family” and we would love for you to join us. Plus, be sure to ask about Yoga classes … maybe we have a class for you!

Q: Can children come? Can I bring a friend?

A: The Yoga class might not be appropriate for children with no prior Yoga experience, but the Open House certainly is, especially if they would like to get an up-close look at some of the Center’s wild animals and learn more about them from Center staff.  And, yes, please do bring a friend!

Q: What’s the cost?

A: 1) Make a cash/check donation to the Wildlife Center of Virginia or, 2) Bring a few items from the Center’s “wish list”:

Paper Towels ** Tissues (no lotion) ** Glad/Hefty Trash Bags (30 gallon & yard sized) ** Ziplock Bags (gallon size) ** Mixed Nuts (unsalted, raw, no peanuts) ** Canned & Dry Dog or Cat Food (any size, any brand) ** Wild Bird Seed ** Silverware/Flatware ** Basic office supplies: 20 lb. white paper, white card stock, pens, staplers, padded mailing envelopes, dry erase markers, spiral-bound notebooks, notepads.

The Center has treated more than 3,000 wild animals this year … our donations allow the Center to care for so many wild animals – from ever-growing bear cubs to teeny-tiny hummingbirds. They need our help to do their work. Please be generous.

Q: Will there be cheesecake?

A: Yes! Dr. Beier’s deee-licious cheesecake will be there!  And, there will be plenty of other sweet and savory treats, and hot cider.

Q: Will there be animals?

A: Absolutely! Our Wildlife Center human friends – Amanda, Lacy, and Randy – will be there and they’ll have some of the Center’s animal “ambassadors” with them. Will there be an owl? A peregrine? A turtle? A bear cub? OK, no bear cub … but, Amanda and Lacy will surprise us with a few Center critters.  (Bring a camera and “wild up” your Instagram and Facebook posts this weekend!)

Q: Do you have a video of the Wildlife Center bear cubs learning to fish?

A: Coming right up!
