Program Sept 17, 2015
Rehabilitating Birds of Prey
by the Avian Reconditioning Center
Birds of prey (raptors) are vulnerable to accidents with power lines, poisoning and other human and natural hazards. The Avian Reconditioning Center (ARC), a not for profit rehabilitation and education facility, works to physically recondition raptors that have been inactive for an extended period of time while recovering from illness or injury. Located on 10 acres in Apopka, ARC uses falconry techniques to evaluate a bird's chances for survival in the wild after recovering from an injury and to teach young birds to hunt. For our September program,rehabilitators from the Avian Reconditioning Center will share how this work is done. This is a great chance to see several less-commonly seen raptors up close.
Join us September 17 for a fascinating program, suitable for children and all ages.For directions to Leu Gardens visit:http://www.leugardens.org/plan/directions.htm
Orlando as Premier City
to visit in 2015
according to The New York Times
Orlando is the premier spot to visit in 2015 (The New York Times, 2015), but it is more than Disney with 83 parks in Orange County alone, and its natural wonders are endless. Something is always happening!
