‘Birds of Prey Day’ held at Chilo Lock Park

The Clermont County Park District hosted a ‘Birds of Prey Day’ at the Chilo Lock #34 Visitor Center and Museum Feb. 3.

“Once or twice a year, we hold presentations like this to provide a fun and educational way for people to learn about predatory birds that live in the county,” said Chief Naturalist Keith Robinson. “We especially want kids to learn how important these types of birds are that live in our own backyards.”

Raptors, Inc., a non-profit, volunteer-based organization that rescues and rehabilitates birds of prey, gave a presentation and live demonstration with three birds of prey to the more than 30 people in attendance at the Chilo Park.

Loveland resident Susan Williams is the educational director at Raptors, Inc.
