“Wings of Wonder” – Birds of Prey at Blennerhassett Island
Live birds of prey at Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park is presented by Three Rivers Avian Center. The educational birds are a great opportunity to learn what bird says “Who cooks for me, who cooks for you all?” as well as meet other raptors.
The afternoon program is all about raptors native to West Virginia: owls, hawks and eagles. You’ll learn about the habitat, diet and behavior of each bird presented, the most common causes of injury to each species and the laws protecting these special birds. No fee to attend. Open to the public, the program begins at 1:00 p.m. on August 29, 2021, and is family friendly. The program will be at the Mansion lawn area.
Three Rivers Avian Center of Brooks, WV, (tracwv.org) conducts this wonderful educational program at many state parks across West Virginia as an interpretive program.
