    I would like to attend this event on Wednesday the 15th. I did call the below listed phone number and left a message on Friday evening. The event sounds like it will be informative about the Raptor center and nature center.

    I had a nice informative evening at the Meadowside Nature Center. I’m sorry that I did not get a chance to speak with you as seeing how busy setting up your laptop for the talk. Then I had to leave a little early to get to work by 10pm.Your presentation was given with knowledge and love for your work. Really an excellent talk. Much better then trying to figure things out on the web site like those laundry basket nests. The highlight was seeing that barred owl that I had run my truck into. I’m really pleased that it was saved and is being well cared for as an exhibit there at the nature center. My friend Lewis saved a Redtailed Hawk just a few days after my incident but the poor thing lost it’s beak after being glued back on and had to be put down. Being better educated as to who to call and what to do to try and save these great birds is something that is really unknown in the public. Thank you for all of your efforts at educating people like me to get a better understanding as to what it is that your group is doing. Best wishes for your continued success, Ken Johnson.
