Norfolk Land Trust Annual Meeting: Sharon Audubon’s Hawks & Owls
Saturday, February 27th, 4:00 pm
Owls and raptors will be the special guests at the Norfolk Land Trust’s annual meeting. The program, presented by Sunny Bettley, the Audubon ’s Outreach and Wildlife Rehabilitation Specialist, will follow a brief meeting of the Land Trust. The public is welcome to attend. The program this year was inspired, in part, by reports of several close encounters in the fall with a bold owl at Barbour Woods.
Various species of live hawks and owls will accompany the Audubon’s staff to demonstrate their beauty, power and connection with the natural world. Similarities and differences of these amazing birds of prey will be discussed and several props will also be on hand for viewing. Through this program, the audience will understand why raptors and their environment should continue to be protected and respected.
