Don't Miss the 1st Annual Winter Raptor Fest.
Attention raptor enthusiasts, keep your weekend open for the 1st Annual Winter Raptor Fest held on March 12-13 in Fort Edward, NY. See hawks, owls and falcons on display and enjoy watching their spectacular flight show. Learn about the short-eared owl, American kestrel, and other captivating birds of prey as you meet with experts who work to protect and conserve our wildlife. Join DEC biologists as they discuss tracking raptor movements with use of satellite, and meet with wildlife rehabilitators to find out what it takes to care for these wild animals. Additional fun activities include a snowshoe race, a horse-drawn sleigh ride, and a snow sculpture competition. This fun-filled two-day event will be held at the Little Theatre on the Farm in Washington County Grasslands Important Bird Area, a place that is critical to the survival of many raptors.
