On Sunday, Oct. 5, Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary hosted its third annual Taste of the Wild. The money raised at this event goes to supporting the animals and programs at the Sanctuary.

It is open to the public year-round and is available for educational out-reach programs on request. HPZS also is a conservation triage staging to more than 200 injured wild animals every year.
