Adults and children can discover the wonders of birds of prey at Raptor Day, April 14, at Charlestown State Park. Raptor Day runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with new activities starting every hour.
Hardy Lake Raptor Rehab Center will have several of its birds on hand for visitors to see up-close. Naturalists and bird watchers will lead bird-watching activities using telescopes to observe birds in their native habitat. Other educational raptor programming will be provided by Naturalist at Heart volunteers from Falls of the Ohio State Park.
Ongoing children’s activities will take place at Clark Shelter, including dissecting an owl pellet, learning how to use scopes and binoculars for bird watching, coloring activities and bird habitat crafts.
The event is free, although the standard $5 per-vehicle entrance fee for Indiana residents and $7 per-vehicle non-resident entrance fee will be charged.
Charlestown State Park is at 12500 State Route 52, Charlestown, 47111.
