Visit with Raptors at our 2017 Country Fair! Nature’s Educators, a non-profit based out of Sedalia, Colorado is dedicated to helping the wildlife and raptor populations by educating the public on the importance of protecting these populations. They do this by “creating unique ways to inspire and excite the public,” according to its website.
Six live birds, known as animal ambassadors, will be on display at the 2017 Trail Walk and Country Fair on Sunday, September 17, 2017. Stop by to visit Erebus the Great Horned Owl who lost an eye during a vehicle accident.
Birds of prey are generally regarded as majestic yet dangerous creatures, and some are at risk of endangerment. “Humans have the capability of making both small and large changes to the environment to help conserve habitats and wildlife,” said Executive Director Devin Paszek. “We need to be concerned about habitats and wildlife to keep our own ecosystem in balance.”
Tickets to the Trail Walk and Country Fair are available at TrailWalk.Gesture.com. Proceeds benefit conservation educational programming at the Cherry Hills Land Preserve.
