Event Description: 

Ever wish you could experience the thrill of being up close to a magnificent eagle, hawk, falcon, or owl? Well, this is your opportunity!  Horizon Wings will bring  these extraordinary birds right to the Goodwin pavilion. All of the program birds in their care are unable to survive in the wild, but have overcome their individual challenges and have learned to adapt to their new lives as feathered ambassadors. Be inspired by their individual stories of survival, explore fascinating facts about each species, and learn what you can do to help them.
Horizon Wings was formed in 2001 by Mary-Beth Kaeser as a 501C3 non-profit organization for the rehabilitation of raptors. Mary-Beth has been a Wildlife Rehabilitator since 1985.  RSVP IS REQUIRED by 5/12/18.
