Live Raptor Show – Liberty Wildlife

Tuesday, March 10, 2020
7:00pm – 9:00pm

Bring the kids and grandkids and join us for a live raptor presentation by Liberty Wildlife Rehab Foundation. This is always a special program, visually exciting and enjoyed by all ages. All your questions will be answered about each of the beautiful creatures our Liberty Wildlife handlers bring to us.

Liberty Wildlife is an award-winning rehabilitation center, caring for injured, sick, and orphaned wildlife located in the Phoenix area. While they care for avian, reptile, amphibian and small mammal species, they specialize in endangered species such as the California Condor, and raptors. Those birds that are too injured to be successfully released back into the wild become their education birds. They allow audiences such as ours to see these birds up close, when you would normally only see them soaring far overhead. We can also learn from their stories to help keep other birds safe.

Monthly Speaker Series programs are held at the Southeast Regional Library at the southeast corner of Greenfield and Guadalupe in Gilbert, AZ. New speaker each month, browse our book table for the latest birding guides and more! Doors open at 6:30pm.

Upcoming Speakers:
  • Apr 14 - Dragonflies – Pierre Devche
