The Squam Lakes Natural Science Center returns to Bretzfelder Park Aug. 14th at 6 p.m. for a free program titled “Eyes of the Wild: Hawks and Owls”
Join a naturalist from Squam Lakes Natural Science Center to peer into the raptor world through an up close experience with live hawks and owls that call New Hampshire home. Compare the fascinating similarities and differences between hawks and owls to discover how they are perfectly suited to the habitat niche they each fill. The program is part of the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests’ Bretzfelder Park Family Educational Series. The program is interactive and designed to engage and educate audience members of all ages.
