The Talon Trust is having a live auction this Saturday, at Audubon State Park with a family friendly live raptor program at noon, to teach people more about these birds of prey!

The Talon Trust

The Talon Trust is an Evansville based rescue of raptors (also known as predatory birds). They rescue and rehabilitate many kinds of raptors, and also have an educational program to teach the public about birds of prey. They are a non profit dedicated to native raptors such as hawks, owls, vultures, etc...

You can learn more about The Talon Trust, here!

The event will be happening this Saturday at Audubon State Park in Henderson from 10A-3P. The event will also have a fun family friendly live raptor program at noon, where you and your family can come out and see a live bird of prey up close, and you'll get to learn all about them, and their story. You'll also learn more about why conservation of these birds is so important! It's a great educational program. That will be happening at noon during the live auction!

Here's what they have to say about the upcoming event on Facebook:

The Talon Trust is a local raptor rescue and rehabilitation organization that also provides educational experiences for the public. A not-for-profit 501c3 organization, we operate solely on donations, grants, and program fees to fund daily care and safe enclosures for injured birds of prey.

A silent auction featuring locally donated and handcrafted items will be conducted to raise funds for this cause. Go to link:https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1686032801432215.1073741836.672909412744564&type=1&l=248a86b3ef
Auction items will be added to an album on our Facebook page during the week leading up to the auction. Just comment your bid amount on the item's photo in the Facebook album. We will post updates on latest bid amounts during the live auction on April 21st. You can continue to bid online during this time. Items need to be picked up at to Audubon museum on April 21st, or else please contact us to make special arrangements.

Show your support for wildife conservation and our local rescue efforts by donating or bidding in the auction! All funds raised will go towards caring for injured birds!

Also don't miss our free, family-friendly live raptor program from at 12pm noon during the auction. Volunteer wildlife rehabilitators will share stories of raptors that have been rescued and released back to the wild, as well as introduce you to living, breathing, wicked-cool raptors that are dependent on our care for the rest of their lives.
