On Saturday, June 10th, 2017, the American River Natural History Association (ARNHA), will join with the Sacramento Fine Arts Center to present the eighth annual Art Where Wild Things Are, an art show, auction and gala celebrating interpretations of the natural world. This event brings together art patrons, philanthropists, artists and nature-lovers for what has become the most important fundraiser of the year for the Effie Yeaw Nature Center, a non-profit education and visitor center operated as a community service by ARNHA.

The art show, featuring creative interpretations of local nature in a variety of media, is juried by well-known local artists.

We are pleased to welcome Cecily Hastings as this year's Honorary Event Chair, and Edie Lambert as the emcee. The evening gala will feature delicious food from a Global Gourmet Caterer, beverages, music, and silent and live auctions of juried artwork. KLM Auctions will host the exciting live art auction. Free valet parking is provided.

Tickets are $90 per person. Please use the menu below for ticket purchase.
