Raising Funds for Raptor Rehabilitation

Thanks to all our supporters for making our first-ever Ribs n Raptors fundraiser a big success. All the proceeds will go towards the rehabilitation of sick, injured and orphaned raptors received by BPRC.  The finale of the day was a release of a Great Horned Owl which flew beautifully. Thanks also to all our volunteers who shared their passion with our guests. We look forward to seeing everyone again. This release photo by Keith Brown@KB Images.
