Raptor Ambassador Open House with Darke County Parks

September 6, 2014
1:00 - 3:00 pm

Join the Darke County Parks as they open the raptor mew (enclosure for raptors) to the public on Saturday, September 6 from 1:00-3:00 pm to allow Greta the Great Horned Owl and Joseph the Red-tailed Hawk to show off their homes. Staff and Volunteers will be present to answer questions and of course you’ll get a great look at Greta and Joseph! This program is open to the public, but we ask that all visitors remain calm and quiet while within the raptors’ area for the consideration of the birds. For more information call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165 or visit our website at www.darkecountyparks.org. Also occurring on this day, the Log House and Blacksmith Shop will be open from 1:00-4:00 pm.
