On any list of Earthplace highlights, the birds of prey nest near the top.
Brought to the nature center off Stony Brook Road because of injury, they’re cared for and nursed back to health. Each year, thousands of visitors — including many youngsters — marvel at them up close, and appreciate how special each one is.
They can’t survive in the wild, but find sanctuary at the sanctuary.
Unfortunately, Earthplace’s longtime supplier of food is unable to continue donating. The non-profit must raise $14,000 to keep their rescued raptors fed.
Earthplace is personalizing its appeal:
- $25 feeds Edgar, the raven, for 2 weeks
- $50 feeds Ladybird, the horned owl, for 2 weeks
- $100 feeds Talon, the red-tailed hawk, for 1 month
- $250 feeds Chatty and Cerena, the bald eagles, for 1 month.
