In honor of Earth Day, join Dr. Daisy Fiore from the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey to learn more about these native raptors

Did you know raptors, such as hawks, owls, Bald Eagles and osprey, play a vital role in Florida’s ecosystem? The health of these birds is crucial to our environment. Join Dr. Daisy Fiore from the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey for an up-close look at some of Florida’s native raptors and learn how you can help make your spaces more bird friendly this Earth Day. She’ll discuss the importance of planting native plants and explain how these special birds’ lives depend on plant diversity.

Special instructions: Dr. Daisy Fiore will be bringing some feathered friends with her to this presentation. While the birds are out, attendees must remain seated and quiet.

This program is presented by Birds of Prey and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
