The Hungry Owl Project is thrilled to announce our first ever “Birds of Prey” event at the Marin Art & Garden Center’s Garden Room in Ross. We’ll provide information on San Francisco Bay Area hawks, you’ll see an amazing live falcon flight demonstration, and learn about our Raptor Recovery program. There will be nature themed fine art and photography for sale by local artists, AND you’ll have the opportunity to see live raptors up close! We’ll share information and photos from our successful activities. This is your chance to find out about local birds of prey, drink wine, have fun, and learn what you can do to support them. Nest boxes – including one for the local species of American Kestrel, will be available for sale. Join us for a fun afternoon event featuring hors de oeuvres, local wine, and other beverages. All food and drink will be served in and on earth friendly products. This event is a fundraiser to continue our work for raptors in the Bay Area and to provide public outreach about these incredible and beneficial birds. Reservations are $45 per person.Added to the calendar on Thursday Feb 26th, 2009 9:35 AM
An entertaining presentation will be given by the dynamic Allen Fish, Director of the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory. Anne Ardillo, a passionate volunteer for the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory and Hungry Owl Project, will share her experiences from Baskets for Birds- the Hungry Owl Project’s Raptor Rescue program.
The mission of the Hungry Owl Project is to reduce the need for harmful pesticides and rodenticides by encouraging natural predators, through conservation of habitat, erecting nest boxes when appropriate, through research and education, and providing a resource of help and information on alternative methods of sustainable pest management.
The Hungry Owl Project is a program of WildCare (http://www.wildcarebayarea.org ), a non-profit wildlife hospital and education center in San Rafael which serves the San Francisco Bay Area.
