Do you like rescued animals? How about rescued and rehabilitated wild animals? We have some amazing animals for you to meet! These animals were rehabilitated, but can no longer survive on their own in the wild. So the educators at WERC care for them and take them out into the community to do education about wild birds of prey.
Come on over to Kelley park (the home of Happy Hollow and the Japanese Friendship Garden) and walk on down to the lower meadow inside the park. There is an amphitheater there and that's where the educators from WERC, the Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center, will be with their live birds of prey.
Parking in the main lot off Senter road, nearest Story is $10 per vehicle. Parking in the next lot south of the Japanese Friendship Garden on Senter Road is off Phelan and Senter and this lot only costs $6 per car. If you park in either lot, please walk toward the interior of the park and down the little hill to the lower meadow. You are, of course, also welcome to walk in if live nearby or would like to take public transportation.
There will be a presentation that lasts about 45 minutes and then plenty of question and answer time after that. Due to the comfort of the birds, we ask that you please do not bring dogs.
Seeing these birds up close is really a treat! So don't miss out!
