Have you ever wanted to see a hawk or owl close up? This program by Renee Wahlen, director at Marsh Haven Nature Center, will introduce some of Wisconsin’s raptors through a photo presentation, mounted specimens, and LIVE birds. These are educational birds and cannot be returned to the wild due to a variety of permanent injuries. Learn about these amazing birds and their importance to our environment, find out what characteristics define raptors, and discover the secrets of the silent hunter – the owl. The particular live birds may vary by program but may include a Red-tailed Hawk, Great Horned Owl, Eastern Screech Owl, or Barred Owl.
Marsh Haven Nature Center is a non-profit, volunteer-supported nature center located on the north end of the Horicon Marsh, just three miles east of Waupun on Highway 49. The organization was founded in 1984 and the center was built through the efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers and supporters. Marsh Haven offers hiking trails, an observation tower, an overnight bunkhouse, educational programs, and special events on its 46 acres. Marsh Haven Nature Center is a special place where nature is appreciated, conserved, and celebrated! The program will be held indoors in the Respect Our Earth theater. There is no fee, but donations are appreciated
