There will be something for everyone at the Montezuma Audubon Center’s 8th Annual Wildlife Festival in Savannah, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 3 (today).
The Institute for Environmental Learning, Kindred Kingdoms Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, and WOWEE Wild Lifewill deliver animal programs throughout the day that will feature owls, hawks, “Liberty the Bald Eagle,” a wolf, fox and other mammals. The non-releasable animals will be on display during the programs that will focus on their wild characteristics, rehabilitation and conservation.
Everyone will have a chance to get a picture taken with “Liberty”.
Another highlight of the festival will be the Children’s Theater and Activity Tent where award-winning entertainer Lydia Adams Davis will perform nature-related puppet shows and Lois Sprague will entertain with balloon animals. Children will also enjoy the huge bounce house, making nature crafts and stained glass art, building a bluebird box, and answering wildlife trivia. Wildlife enthusiasts can fish their way to the backyard bass game and then fly over to see the dragons from the pond.
The cost to attend the festival is $4 for adults, $2 for children 5 years and older, FREE for children under 5. For more information, call 365-3588 or visit http://ny.audubon.org/montezuma
