VIRTUALLY MARCH FOR AUSTRALIA! 

Dress up as your favorite Australian animal to bring awareness to the devastation to wildlife from the wildfire season. On April 18th participate in our Virtual WildWalk by posting a photo with the hashtag #wildwalk2020 and IWFF will include in their online parade!

WILDWALK & WILDFEST

POSTPONED TILL 2021

WildWalk Parade @ 2PM at the XXXX's.

This is a great opportunity for kids and parents to dress up as their favorite flora or fauna and then walk, hop, and crawl down Higgins Avenue. The parade begins at 2:30PM and participants should line up by the XXXXs beginning at 2PM.

Children from the same classes/groups are welcome to walk together in the parade, or kids can walk with their families and friends.

WILDFEST FESTIVITIES @2PM at Caras Park

  • Music by The Salamanders
  • More face painting!
  • Scavenger hunt for kids with prizes
  • Dozens of conservation and education vendors with fun activities

Be a vendor, a sponsor, or a volunteer. WildFest will pick up where the parade ends in Caras Park with live music, food vendors, and fun activities hosted by local organizations (that’s you!) dedicated to sharing knowledge with our community about wildlife and conservation.

In 2019, The UM Widlife Society and IWFF combined forces to produce the best annual IWFF WildFest and WildWalk Parade Yet! By approaching this event together we are looking to expand our reach, share resources and make an impact! As a matter of fact, IWFF was started by a bear biologist and professor named Chuck Jonkel and the festival was led by the Student Wildlife Society for the first 15 years of the festival.
