Wings of Wonder Screech Owl Release at The Homestead (Thursday, August 4)

The Homestead and Wings of Wonder invite you to a raptor release on Thursday, August 4, 2011 at the resort’s Camp Tam-A-Rack outdoor amphitheatre. Wings of Wonder will have 2 young eastern screech owls ready for release to a natural habitat.

Rebecca Lessard, Executive Director of Wings of Wonder, will present a program called “The Wonders of Raptors” from 7-8pm which is free and open to the community. The owl release will happen right after the program.

Participants who purchase a $20 tickets will be placed into a drawing for an opportunity to hold the owl and do the actual release as a fund-raiser for the raptor program. Contest entrants must be 18 years old to enter, with no limit of the number of tickets an individual can purchase. Two winners will be able to name the owl and do the actual release.
