Birds of Prey program to benefit animal shelter
Thomaston — The public is invited to a special educational presentation about birds of prey conducted by Hope Douglas, president of Wind Over Wings, a nonprofit wildlife organization on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 2 p.m. in Thomaston’s Watts Hall.
This will be a fun and interactive program, as Douglas will be bringing four special birds to the event, including a Golden Eagle. There is a suggested donation of $10 for program attendees, and all proceeds will benefit the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County.
“Wind Over Wings has developed a thought-provoking and entertaining program that will appeal to all animal lovers. I am extremely grateful both to Hope Douglas, and to one of our greatest local supporters, Bobs McAleenan, for bringing us together and making this event possible,” said PMHSKC Executive Director Tracy Sala in a news release.
Douglas added: “I hope that through this event, we will inspire more conservation of the amazing wildlife around us, and to support PMHSKC’s efforts in caring for homeless companion animals in this community,”
Wind Over Wings is a nonprofit, wildlife educational organization featuringbirds who are unable to survive in their natural environment. Their goal is to offer educational programs providing a personal connection with wildlife that will lead to responsible stewardship of the environment.
