Event Details

This program now full. Thank you for supporting programming at Decorah Public Library.

Kids of all ages are invited to attend a LIVE raptor show featuring a red-tailed hawk and a screech owl at 11 am Saturday March 23 at Decorah Public Library. The show is free thanks to the Friends of Decorah Public Library.

Award-winning nonprofit rehabilitation and education group SOAR (Saving Our Avian Resources) and their feathered friends will teach kids about the amazing adaptations of local raptors and their role in our environment.

SOAR was established in 1999 to perform raptor rehabilitation, education, and research. SOAR provides care for over 300 birds each year that have been injured or orphaned, primarily from Western Iowa. They also provide educational programs about non-releasable birds of prey throughout Iowa. Data collected by SOAR helps with ongoing research to improve rehab techniques, prevent future mortality, and to detect threats to wildlife populations.

For more information about SOAR or to see their current patients and educational ambassadors visit www.soarraptors/org.
