Our 2011 Birds of
Prey program was held on September 25th at the State Park. We had over 150
people attend the show. SOAR (Save Our American Raptures) has brought their
show to us before and it is always a thrill to have them show off their
beautiful birds. The highlights of the show are always the "free flight"
exhibitions and the presentation of the American Bald Eagle. We thank Dale
and John Stokes for bringing us another fantastic show. SOAR has
already been booked for next year.
