Children and adults will enjoy an interactive personal experience with live raptors such as a falcon, an owl, and possibly a hawk. Volunteers will answer questions and share stories of birds that have been injured and can’t survive in the wild, and now serve as ambassadors for their species. They will also tell birds that have recovered from an injury and set free. The Talon Trust, Inc., based in Evansville, serves the southwestern Indiana region and is a local, volunteer-based organization dedicated to education and the conservation of native raptors through rescue, rehabilitation, and, if possible, release. Operations are made possible through public, individual, and corporate donations, grants, and program fees. Volunteers operate all rescues and programs out in the community. Funding goes toward helping to feed and care for the injured birds as well as outreach programs. For more info, visit http://thetalontrust.org/ and https://www.facebook.com/
Hear firsthand about the creation of an amazing, recurring event in neighboring Orange County. Supporting opportunities for "creative aging", the producers of Hoosier Hometown Live will share the story of Paoli's radio show, which draws on the talents of local citizens of all ages to enhance quality of life. Imagine Garrison Keillor's popular, live, public radio show Prairie Home Companion set in southern Indiana. This regularly sold-out, homegrown series happens four times a year. The next show is Nov. 15. The old-time radio show, filled with down-home music, tall tales written by local citizens, and a variety of other nonsense and creativity, includes audience participation and fun for the whole family. The show airs live on Orange County's WSEZ, FM 98.7. All proceeds benefit the local community.
