Free Feathered Fridays starts today

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Starting today, people who visit the Jackson Hole and Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center on Fridays will be greeted with a feathered friend from the local raptor center. The Teton Raptor Center is no stranger to the visitor center. They have provided one to two programs there each year, bringing live birds of prey to share with audiences. Due to the popularity of the programs, the National Elk Refuge and Teton Raptor Center have scheduled a series of “Feathered Friday” visits this winter, running weekly from today through March 25. The informal presentations, held from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m., will give visitors an opportunity to learn about the birds as they stand an arm’s length away from the avian emissaries. The program is free of charge. “Our trial run earlier this month was a huge success,” said Becky Collier, Senior Avian Educator for the Teton Raptor Center. “We look forward to our new venue and expanded partnership.” Learn more about the avian ambassadors who will take turns making visitor center appearances at *Feature Photo: Owly has the distinction of being the first resident raptor at the Teton Raptor Center. h/t National Elk Refuge / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news #whatshappening
