Raptor Weekend at the Audubon Society

They are a powerful force in the natural world. Birds with long sharp talons, amazing strength, hooked beaks that tear, and highly developed eyesight and hearing.

They are raptors, the superior hunters of the avian world. Birds of prey with keen adaptations that provide speed and accuracy for the hunt. And they’re coming to the Audubon Society of Rhode Island’s Environmental Education Center for Raptor Weekend, September 11 and 12, 2010.

Wildlife rehabilitators and experts from across the Northeast will be showcasing a wide variety of these extraordinary birds of prey at the largest raptor celebration in New England. Eagles, falcons, owls, and hawks will be featured in live flight demonstrations and educational programs for bird enthusiasts of all ages.

In partnership with ASRI, WSBE Rhode Island PBS will send FOUR families to Raptor Weekend for free! Each family 4-pack of tickets is valued at $25. CLICK HERE to register to win.
