Birds of prey make museum visit

Posted in:

The public is invited to take part in another Birds of Prey exhibition at the Bandera Natural History Museum this Saturday, Nov 30.

The exhibition features performances by raptors and other birds of prey from the Last Chance Forever sanctuary in San Antonio.

The program will start at 1 p.m. at the museum, 267 Old San Antonio Highway in Bandera.

The museum’s director of operations, Maggie Schumacher, said it has become “a very popular program” for the dinosaur museum.

“We welcome everyone in the area to come out and spend the afternoon,” she said. “It’s fascinating seeing these birds–hawks, owls, falcons, vultures, and eagles–up close and learn what they can do.”

Regular museum admission will apply. It includes entrance to the museum and grounds. Rates are $10 for adults, $6 for those age 12 and under, and free for children 3 and under.

Last Chance Forever is the San Antonio-based nonprofit that rehabilitates birds of prey and helps educate the public about their role in nature.

The program includes live bird “ambassadors,” flying and feeding demonstrations, and educational discussion of bird behavior.

The Bandera Natural History Museum will host two more special programs over the holidays. They are a Christmas pageant featuring animal performances by animals from Happy Tails, plus pictures with Santa, on Dec. 21, and a visit from Dinosaur George on Dec. 28.

Additional information about the museum is available at www.banderanhm.org and by calling 830-328-5090.
