Hoo’s Woods Raptor Center, a nonprofit organization “dedicated to environmental education and the conservation of birds of prey through public education,” is holding its annual open house on Sat., June 11th, from 10am-3pm. It’s free, but donations to support the care and feeding of the raptors will be welcome. Other than the annual open house, the Center is not open to the general public except for scheduled group tours, so this is quite an opportunity!
If you go, please bear in mind:
- Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
- Individuals must stay together in a group.
- Contact with the birds is prohibited.
- Cameras are permitted, but not video recording.
- The Center is not accessible for persons with disabilities.
- No public restroom is available at the Center.
If you’d like to do some research on raptors, Andersen Library has materials. A search of HALCAT, our catalog, would find books such as A photographic guide to North American raptors (3rd-floor Main Collection, QL696.F3 W48 1995) and Birds of prey: Natural history and conservation of North American raptors (3rd-floor Main OVERSIZE Collection, QL696.F3 S678 1991).
