Attend a “wild” weekend program all about birds of prey and take a chance on a coveted diner’s delight dinner raffle at the same time this week when the Westerly Land Trust presents a program with the Born To Be Wild Nature Center scheduled for 1 p.m. on Saturday at the land trust building. Included in the day’s festivities will be the drawing of three winning tickets that will award the lucky winners more than $500 worth of dining gift certificates to area restaurants. Only 300 tickets will be sold, costing $50 each, giving players a pretty decent 1 in 100 chance at being chosen.
