Humane Society Calumet Area’s Moraine Ridge Wildlife will host an evening in celebration of nocturnal wildlife on November 12. From 5 to 8 p.m., guests can enjoy a campfire, roast marshmallows, sip hot apple cider and learn more about the animals that come out at night at MRW’s rehabilitation center, 570 N. 450 E., Valparaiso.
The evening also features a scavenger hunt that will uncover nocturnal wildlife prowling the forests of MRW, kids crafts and a chance to meet MRW’s wildlife ambassadors—including a great horned owl and eastern screech owls—up close. To learn more about the event, contact MRW at 219-299-8027 or [email protected]

Moraine Ridge Wildlife Rehabilitation Center was founded in 1997 by a group of wildlife rehabilitators and enthusiasts. Its primary mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and return orphaned and injured wildlife to the wild. In addition, the center provides educational opportunities for the community that promote informed and humane interaction with native wildlife. In 2014, MRWRC partnered with Humane Society Calumet Area, which allowed the center to substantially expand the scope of its mission and delivery of its services. In 2015, MRWRC admitted 1,075 injured and orphaned native wildlife.
