Earth Day Birds of Prey 2013

The Lytle Creek League Of Conservators/No Child Left Indoors Volunteers Present Earth Day Birds Of Prey Saturday, April 20, 2013

Our friend from Raptor, Inc., Dan Gallagher, and a red-tailed hawk at last year's event.  
He obviously loves his job!  

Join us Saturday, April 20, for an opportunity for children to get up close and personal with some of our feathered friends – raptors. Children and their adult companions will learn about the important role raptors such as owls, hawks, and vultures play in our ecosystem and personally meet raptors. The program is a partnership between the Lytle Creek League of Conservators/No Child Left Indoors volunteers and Raptor, Inc.

Raptor, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of birds of prey through rehabilitation, education and conservation. Their goals include the education of the public on the importance of raptors and the preservation of their native habitat; and the rehabilitation and return of injured raptors to their natural environment.

The program starts at 10:00 a.m. and again at 11:15 a.m. Everyone is welcome to join us for this free program, which will be held in the Community Room in the Wilmington Municipal Building (69 N. South St., Wilmington).

Registration is required and space is limited, so please register early HERE or by calling Lori Williams (937) 725-3811.  Parents or other responsible adult must accompany children for the Earth Day program.

If you are interested in your children participating in a service project in conjunction with Earth Day, please let us know when you register.
