Add this Event to Calendar 04/23/2020 06:30 PM 04/23/2020 07:30 PM Threatened & Endangered Birds of Prey


In an abundance of caution, and following the recommendations from leading health officials to encourage 'social distancing' to help reduce the transmission of Covid-19, the Attleboro Public Library is cancelling and/or postponing all group events and meetings indefinitely. The Library shall re-evaluate this decision moving forward based upon any new developments that occur over the next few weeks.

Educators from Horizon Wings will explain what the classifications “threatened” and “endangered” really mean. The progam will feature an American Kestrel, a Peregrine Falcon, a Northern Saw-Whet Owl, a Barn Owl and a Bald Eagle. What caused the drastic decline of the Peregrine Falcon populations in North America in the 1960’s? Learn which species of raptors are currently on Massachusett’s threatened and endangered list and ways in which we can help to promote their survival.

Generously funded by Friends of Attleboro Public Library.
