If you're looking for something fun and educational for both kids and adults, then head to Red Hook this Friday, Feb. 23 for Bill Robinson’s Birds of Prey Wildlife Show at the Red Hook Community Center on 59 Fisk Street. The show starts at 6:30 pm, but doors open at 6 pm for pre show wild animal themed crafts.

Bill Robinson is a wildlife educator, photographer, filmmaker, and writer who has appeared on shows such as David Letterman, The Today Show, and Good Morning America. He has taught ornithology and biology at SUNY New Paltz for over ten years. You'll be able to learn how these amazing creatures make their way in the wild, some of them right here in the Hudson Valley. See an owl devour a mouse, a turkey vulture show off it’s incredible wingspan, and a raptor fly just overhead.

Grab the kids and make sure you bring a camera, because there will be many photo opportunities. This event is free and open to all and no registration required.
