Birds of Prey Presentation

On the sunny fall afternoon of October 11, the Birds of Prey Foundation staff presented fascinating information on raptors to over 100 citizens. Children and adults had the opportunity to see live birds up-close, including a bald eagle, red-tailed hawk, great horned owl, and turkey vulture. The afternoon was sponsored by the Broomfield Open Space Foundation and Broomfield Open Space and Trails.
