Kids are invited to join us at Jamestown Community Library at 2 p.m. on October 30, 2019, as the Glen Helen Raptor Center presents Owl Babies. Learn more about the amazing owls that live in our forests, backyards, and barns in this program for ages 2–10.
Wildlife rehabilitators from the Raptor Center will introduce two live owls. Kids will also hear a story and sing a song while learning about owls they might see in our area.
The Raptor Center is part of the Glen Helen Nature Center, a private, non-profit reserve administered by the Glen Helen Ecology Institute of Antioch College and supported by donors to the Glen Helen Association. The mission of the Raptor Center is to educate the public about birds of prey, wildlife, and conservation issues as well as improve the welfare of raptors across Ohio.
The center operates the only raptor rehabilitation facility in the area, with the goal of healing and returning injured raptors to the wild. Rescued birds unable to be returned to the wild may become Raptor Center Education Ambassadors, such as the owls to be featured in this program. Learn more about raptor rehabilitation and find out what you can do to help if you find an injured animal on the Raptor Center’s website.
