Kirwin National Wildlife Refuge Hosts Annual Raptor Program 
January 24, 2018

Kirwin, Kansas – Experience a close encounter with a live Bald Eagle. Kirwin National Wildlife Refuge is sponsoring an American Bald Eagle and raptor program for the schools on Wednesday, January 24, 2018. This educational program continues to be an exciting opportunity for students not only to learn about our nation’s symbol, but to observe live eagles up close and also in their natural habitat outdoors. The program will be presented by Diane Johnson, wildlife rehabilitator, from Operation WildLife, Inc. located in Linwood, Kansas. In addition to the Bald Eagle, Ms. Johnson will also feature birds that are rarely seen in captivity.

Ms. Johnson is offering a morning and afternoon program for surrounding school districts’ elementary students. Immediately following Ms. Johnson’s presentation, the Refuge staff will give tours featuring the wild eagles of Kirwin National Wildlife Refuge.

Please RSVP by Friday, January 5, 2018, what time and what grade levels will attend the program. Phone: 785-543-6673
