CANCELLED: Benefit for the North Country SPCA

UPDATE: Due to the snow and very cold weather predicted for Friday, this birds of prey event has been postponed until March or April.

Mark Manske of Adirondack Raptors and Wendy Hall of the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehabilitation Center will have a number of birds on hand for a question and answer session about raptors.

The event will be held on Friday, January 21st at 7:00 pm at the Whallonsburg Grange and will benefit the North Country Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NCSPCA).

Manske, who has been banding raptors for the past 25 years, is an educator, a falconer, and a New York State licensed nuisance wildlife rehabilitator. Hall, a retired nurse, runs a wildlife sanctuary with her husband in Wilmington, where she rehabilitates sick and injured animals, often re-releasing them into the wild.

Manske and Hall will talk about the work they do with their birds, each of whom have very distinct personalities, as well as the importance of habitat conservation for these magnificent creatures.

The suggested minimum donation for the event is $5 per adult with children under 12 free. Cider and cookies will be provided.
