Program on raptor rehabilitation and birds of prey to be held in Derby

The Naugatuck Valley Audubon Society,  in cooperation with the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection will hold "a program for the entire family" at the Kellogg Environmental Center, Derby at 1 p.m. May 15, according to a release.
 
The event will help folks learn about "A Place Called Hope, a Raptor Rehabilitation and Education Center for Birds of Prey," the release said.

This non-profit organization, located in Killingworth, is run by volunteers who specialize in rescue, rehabilitation, re-nesting, and release of birds of prey within Connecticut, the release said. "Their goal is always to reunite wildlife into the natural world."
 
The program will include two live diurnal and two nocturnal birds of prey. Visitors will have a chance to see birds, rehabilitated from injuries too severe for release, which have become educational birds, the release said. "You will learn about their habitat along with tips on how to lessen human conflicts."

After the presentation participants will have a chance to take a walk through the Osborne Homestead Museum gardens and, if time allows, a bird walk across the street at Osbornedale State Park where NVAS maintains bluebird houses, the release said.
The program will be held at the Kellogg Environmental Center, 500 Hawthorne Ave., Derby. A donation of $5 per adult is requested. Children under 12 are free. Light refreshments will be served after the meeting.

For more information, directions, or to register, call (203) 734-2513 or email donna.kingston@ct.gov
