Family Nature Discovery Day – Int’l Vulture Awareness Day
September 1 • 11:00 am - 3:00 pm• $2
Cascades Raptor Center is celebrating International Vulture Awareness Day. Come meet resident Turkey Vultures and enjoy activities highlighting the special Way of the Vulture!
Vultures may not fit everyone’s ideal of beauty – but beauty is as beauty does. And what vultures do is beautiful! Vultures fill a critically important role wherever they live: locating and eating carrion, thereby restricting the spread of many diseases. They can ingest and inactivate dangerous microbes such as anthrax without getting sick.
Participants can also visit with over 40 resident raptors during their visit.
