A special free program for families, Live Birds of Prey will be held at Trailside Nature and Science Center on Saturday, Sept. 16 from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to view a live bald eagle, peregrine falcon and osprey in a way you may never have the chance to in your everyday life,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen. 

This free program provides families with the chance to see live birds of prey from the Delaware Valley Raptor Center up close and personal.   New Jersey’s magnificent raptors have made an inspiring recovery over the past few decades, thanks largely to the work of devoted biologists, educators and faithful volunteers from Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey. Learn about these incredible species and their amazing adaptations.  This program is made possible by a grant from Phillips 66.
