WILD lecture series

Learn more about the wildlife in our backyard by attending the WILD lecture series hosted by our local libraries. Next up for WILD Napa at the Napa Library on April 11, 7:00pm: Oak Galls are CANCELED! But look what we have instead: FALCONRY! Professional falconer Rebecca Rosen, founder of Authentic Abatement, will provide a lecture on falconry, which is the use of hawks, falcons, eagles or owls to catch prey. Rebecca uses falcons and other raptors to help farmers protect their crops from unwanted visitors. She will discuss raptor biology, describe her cool job, and even provide tips on how YOU can help these birds of prey from your own backyard. Family friendly! Meet a live hawk, Falcon, and more! Flight demonstration - weather permitting. Next up: Wednesday, May 9th: Oak Woodlands with Kate Marionchild. 

Join us up-valley for WILD St. Helena at the St. Helena Library on Thursday, May 17th at 7:00 pm to learn about our local Barn Owls.
