"Learning to Fly"
The Talon Trust, Raptor Rescue/Rehab Program
Time: 12:30 - 1:15 pm ET
Location: Lower shelter house
Children and adults will enjoy an interactive personal experience with live raptors--a falcon, an owl, and possibly a hawk. The Talon Trust, Inc., returning from last year and based in Evansville, IN, serve the southwestern Indiana region. Volunteers will share stories of birds that have been injured and can’t survive in the wild, and now serve as ambassadors for their species. The Talon Trust, Inc., is a local volunteer-based organization dedicated to the conservation of native raptors through rescue, rehabilitation, and education.
Operations are made possible through public individual and corporate donations, grants, and program fees. Volunteers operate all rescues and programs out in the community. All birds are cared for which currently are housed on private property, and the organization currently does not offer public tours. Funding goes toward helping to feed and care for the injured birds as well as outreach programs. The Talon Trust is a 501c3 pubic charity, and donations are tax-deductible.
