Little River Wetlands Project, a local nature organization, welcomes Soaring Hawk Raptor Rehabilitators for a free presentation and hike at Eagle Marsh on Wednesday, November 19, 6:30-8 pm. Meet Sherman the short-eared owl and Whodini the screech owl before venturing out to try to attract some of the owls that live at Eagle Marsh. If it rains, Soaring Hawk will bring more raptors to see indoors.  Join us at the Eagle Marsh barn (south side of Engle Road 1/2 mile east of W. Jefferson Blvd., Fort Wayne) for this exciting presentation and night hike.  Be sure to dress for the weather.
