WESTPORT, CONN. -- Earthplace is hosting a family campfire and raptor encounter fundraiser Friday evening in Westport.
Come and enjoy a campfire and meet Earthplace's resident birds of prey from 6 to 8 p.m. at 10 Woodside Lane. The rain date is Saturday.
The event is a fundraiser for Earthplace's animal hall program. The fee of $20 per family will go directly to support the animals who live there. Naturalists will be bringing out those birds they have been working with on the glove so you can get an up close view of them.
The mission of Earthplace is to build a passion in the community for nature and the environment through education, experience and action. Founded in 1958 and accredited by The American Association of Museums, Earthplace maintains a 62-acre wildlife sanctuary with trails, exhibits an interactive natural history museum with wildlife dioramas, houses live wildlife for public viewing and hosts many public nature programs and events. Other activities include a state-licensed pre-school and summer camp, and the harbor watch water quality testing program.
