Registration now open for Wylde Wreathmaking!

“This will be a fun, back-to-nature, seasonal activity that I hope becomes an annual fundraising event for the Wylde Ceneter,” said Stephanie Van Parys, executive director of the Wylde Center. “Participants are invited to bring their own refreshments and beverages, including beer and wine.
