Live Birds of Prey Swoop by the Library!

When you hear the word “raptor,” you may think of the intelligent dinosaurs that Chris Pratt wrangles in the most recent Jurassic Park movie. But did you know that “raptor” also refers to the many species of birds of prey found right here in Massachusetts? Join New England Reptile & Raptor Exhibits at the library on Saturday, May 19th from 10:30-11:30 for an educational and entertaining presentation on local Birds of Prey! See live birds up close and personal as you learn about these aerial hunters, including the various species, habitats, wildlife protection, and more. Not just for kids, this event is suitable for all ages! Due to popularity, registration is recommended to reserve your seat. Register by clicking here or by calling the library at 508-222-0157.

This Birds of Prey program was brought to the library to help celebrate the designation of 2018 as “The Year of the Bird”. To honor the 100-year anniversary of the Migratory Bird Treat Act, the National Audubon Society, National Geographic, BirdLife International, and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology have teamed up to provide a yearlong celebration of birds.
