There will be a brief business session at 7:00 pm, followed by the program & refreshments. Free and open to the public.
Join us for this special program on an aspect of our shared living historical heritage—birds of prey.
Ever wish you could experience the exhilaration of being up close to a magnificent eagle, hawk, falcon, or owl? Well, this is your chance! Although the mission of Horizon Wings is to restore the health of injured birds and release them back into nature, some can never survive again in the wild. These animals serve as educational ambassadors, and we will be thrilled to have some of them at our meeting.
Veteran wildlife rehabilitator Mary-Beth Kaeser founded Horizon Wings in 2001, a nonprofit organization licensed by both the State of Connecticut and U.S. Fish & Wildlife that specializes in raptor rehabilitation.
Horizon Wings’ program for us, entitled “Threatened and Endangered,” delves into the history of a number of species of our native birds, identifying those currently on Connecticut’s threatened and endangered list, exploring the factors behind their population declines and what we can do to help them survive. More at horizonwings.org.
But if you aren’t a member, our monthly informative history-based programs are free and the public is warmly invited. We’ll do our best to make you feel welcome. The business session, which begins at 7:00, rarely lasts more than half an hour. If you want to skip it and just come for the program, plan to arrive about 7:30.
The Canterbury Historical Society’s regular monthly meetings are normally on the second Friday evening of the month unless otherwise noted. We don’t meet in July and August, when we take a summer break. We often do host special events over the summer though, so please check back—or better yet, join our mailing list.
