The program and annual dinner will be held in the Jo Young Switzer Center Hoff Room at Manchester University.
Walton, from the Soarin’ Hawk raptor rehabilitation organization, will present the group’s work in rescue, recovery and release of injured and orphaned birds of prey, and give attendees a chance to view birds close up.
Six live, previously injured and non-releasable raptors, all species that are native to or migrate through our area, will be brought to the program. Both the life history of each species and a personal history of each bird will be presented.
This is a great opportunity to get close to birds you’ve only seen at a distance.
Walton will explain what raptors are about, their importance to humans and their importance to the environment. Anatomy, physiology and behavior will also be discussed in a manner that can be understood by all.
Dinner is available for $19 per person. One may attend the program, beginning around 6:30 p.m., without the dinner for no charge.
