SOAR Bald Eagle Program
Live Bald Eagle Program!!
Many community members took advantage of the large numbers of Bald Eagles fishing at the Big Sioux Recreation Area these past few weeks! We know they are amazing, big, and an unforgettable experience in and of themselves to watch, but I bet there is room to expand your Bald Eagle knowledge! Here is an opportunity for you to learn more about these magnificent beings and see one up close in person!
Kay Neumann, Wildife Biologist/Wildlife Rehabilitator and founder of Saving Our Avian Resources (SOAR), will be giving a public program on Bald Eagles and other raptors native to Iowa. Kay will also explain the tremendous rehabilitation process of raptors that come in to SOAR as well as the various reasons raptors become patients.
Kay has been a dear friend and a tremendous mentor to me over the past few years. I have personally seen her care for patients in her ICU, release raptors back into the wild, give programs all over western Iowa, and leave audiences with a brand new perspective on the raptors of our skies, She does phenomenal work and has very powerful messages to share with the public on ways we can help the raptors around us. This is not something you want to miss and I cannot stress enough how big of a deal it is that she is coming to Hawarden!! I am beyond ecstatic! Be there! It is free!
The program will last about an hour, but Kay will be around to answer any questions. I encourage you to stick around and look over all of her items for sale, take brochures and posters, and look at all of her educational models.
