NOON - 2:00 PM

Breakheart Visitor’s Center, Saugus


SAVE is pleased to sponsor this very special event in conjunction with Breakheart’s annual Fall Festival. MassAudubon’s New England Reptiles & Raptors program will be at the Breakheart Visitor’s Center from NOON to 2:00 PM on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2013 to present a live “birds of prey” program.


Power. Ferocity. Majesty and mystery. Human beings have invested birds of prey with these qualities for thousands of years. Their abilities to do the amazing continue to inspire our thoughts and excite our imaginations. But which ideas about these birds are facts and which are fictions? This program will use live birds of prey, visiting from Mass Audubon's Trailside Museum in the Blue Hills, to explore what makes a "bird of prey," the role they play in the environment, and how humans affect their ability to survive. Audience members will be able to see the birds up close, handle touchable natural history artifacts, and ask an experienced naturalist their questions.


Easily recognized birds of prey are a fascinating group of predators that few people fully understand. The lives of these "aerial hunters" will make for an exciting presentation that will include information on their natural history, biology, adaptations, and habitats.


Live owls, hawks, falcons and vultures await you up-close and personal – all who attend are in for great fun with educational close-up views of these birds of prey.


Please plan to join us for this exciting event.
