Birds of Prey

A Place Called Hope is a Rehabilitation and Education Center for Birds of Prey, located in Killingworth. Their goal is to heal injured, orphaned, or ill birds and return them to the wild where they belong. A few of their birds had injuries that were too severe or damaging to return them to freedom. There will be four birds of prey, including a Red-Tailed Hawk, to see in this presentation who were not able to be released back into the wild – two diurnal and two nocturnal. You will hear their survival story and see them up close as well. Todd and Christine, the owners, will teach you how to protect and respect wildlife in their wonderful presentation. Check out their website.

Date: Tuesday, April 12, 2016
Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm
Fee: $5 per person payable at the door
