Ribs n’ Raptors enjoyed by all!

Rib n’ Raptors was a big success. Thanks to all our guests who helped us raise funds supporting raptor rehabilitation. With more than 700 patients so far this year and a larger number expected next year, this will pay for food and care throughout the year. Our visitors learned about rehab, had great BBQ, and participated in our silent and live auctions. The picture above was the finale of a live auction bid to release a raptor at the end of the day. Mr. Duerr helped release a Red-tailed hawk that was received with a broken wing. Thanks again to everyone who joined us!
