Birds of Prey With Christine’s Critters
Monday, December 7th at 5:00 p.m. on Zoom
Registration required
Open to all in grades K-12

Learn about and meet birds of prey with Christine Peyreigne, founder of Christine’s Critters, Inc. Christine’s foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) and is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of birds of prey and reptiles.

Christine’s Critters takes in injured and/or orphaned hawks, owls, falcons, and eagles and after rehabilitation, whenever possible, returns them to the wild for a second chance at life. For those birds of prey that are unable to return to the wild due to their injuries, Christine finds them permanent homes at nature centers to become educational ambassadors.

Join us virtually to meet some of our amazing animal ambassadors and learn their stories! If we all work together, we can help prevent some of the most common injuries we see in our raptors, and give them a better chance of survival out in the wild.
