Raptors in the Environment

| February 3, 2013 | 0 Comments

The February meeting of San Diego Floral Association will feature Nancy Conney of Sky Hunters Raptor Education and Rehabilitation. She will speak on the importance of raptors in the environment and will bring along several of these magnificent creatures that the organization has rehabilitated but cannot release. Birds like red-tailed hawks, barn owls, kestrels and screech owls are all included in her talk. This meeting is free and open to the public and takes place from 2 to 4 p.m., Wednesday, February 20 at Casa del Prado Building #101 in Balboa Park.
No RSVP is necessary.

After 10 years with Project Wildlife, Conney formed Sky Hunters in 1996. This group cares for birds of prey that are injured and eventually releases them into the wild. A non profit organization, Sky Hunters operates with a volunteer staff and is funded by donations and its community outreach programs.

Conney also is an instructor at the San Diego Natural History Museum and makes presentations at various parks in San Diego County. As vice president of the California Council of Wildlife Rehabilitators, she is passionate about educating the public on the importance of raptors.

Bird houses will be offered by Mo Price of Master Gardeners. For information, call 619-232-5762 or visit www.sdfloral.org.
