Birds Of Prey Day: Live Bird Demonstration And Program Sat. June 1
Estes Park is home to birds of prey including golden eagles, turkey vultures, falcons, and hawks. These fascinating creatures are suited for life in craggy rock outcroppings such as Lumpy Ridge. On Saturday, June 1 at 2:00 p.m., flock to the Estes Park Museum for a special demonstration from the Birds of Prey Foundation, an organization based in Broomfield, Colorado, that helps rehabilitate and release raptors into the wild.
The program will feature live birds and a discussion about how raptors contribute to the ecology and natural history of Estes Park. The program costs $5 per person for youth and adults (free for children under 10 years old) or $15 for a family. Space is limited, first come‐first served.
The Museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. The mission of the Estes Park Museum is to collect, interpret and preserve local history, as well as to present exhibits, programs and events for the education and benefit of residents and visitors of all ages. For more information call the Estes Park Museum at (970) 586‐6256 or visit the Museum’s website at www.estes.org/museum. Admission is free.
