Skraptacular had the honored of being asked to take part in the 2nd annual Urban Wildlife Appreciation Day. What an incredibly high quality, well organized, engaging, and extremely educational event and not to mention, A LOT of fun from all perspectives. Every attendee was given a passport when they entered the event. Each station taught about a different urban wildlife animal. The attendees would travel from table to table observing and learning about each urban animal. After a visit to each table the attendee would receive a stamp and once the stamps were completed the passport was turned in for a prize. - a great way to engage and educate. The live urban wildlife visitors were an inspiration for making urban wildlife sculptures from trash. The Skraptacular mantra for the day was , observe and create. Thanks to Emilio Banda and family, Skraptacular now has a mascot, Skraapy the Squirel inspired by the Day. If you would like to get up close and personal with Skrappy, she's on view at The One Hundred Overlook Towers. Lobby Gallery. Big shout out to Jennifer Hoppa and to all my interns-thanks for making this another Skraptacular event!
