Get to know the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary’s ambassador birds of prey

Bird lovers of all ages will have an opportunity to get acquainted with birds of prey this month at the W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary. The Birds of Prey Live program is set for 1 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28.

The Sanctuary is home to numerous birds that were injured and now cannot survive in the wild. Visitors can see the resident red-tailed hawk, barred owl and great horned owl up close and learn about the qualities that make raptors such adept and efficient hunting and flying machines. In addition to viewing the birds, other educational, family-friendly activities are planned.

Admission for members is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors or students, and $3 for children. For non-members, admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors or students and $5 for children. No registration is required.

The W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary is located at 12685 East C Avenue, one mile north of M-89 and just west of 40th Street. To learn more, visit birdsanctuary.kbs.msu.edu. Direct questions to birdsanctuary@kbs.msu.edu or (269) 671-2510.
