Shangri La to host program on American Raptors

ORANGE — Visit Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center's Discovery Theater for two performances by S.O.A.R., Inc. (Saving Our American Raptors) bird program to learn about American raptors. On Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., visitors will get an up-close look at several types of raptors and learn about their habitats.

This program will be led by Doris Mager of S.O.A.R., Inc. and a $1 donation is requested from each attendee. All donation proceeds go directly to S.O.A.R., Inc. Seating is limited and an RSVP is required. To reserve a seat, call 409-670-9799.

Learn about the need to protect raptors and how you can aid in their conservation. During the program, attendees may have the chance to meet a Great Horned Owl, an American Kestrel or an Eastern Screech Owl. Families are invited to be part of this delightful evening program and visitors will see a raptor fly over the audience. For additional information on this program, contact Environmental Educator Ellen Dacy by calling 409-670-0803 or e-mailing edacy@shangrilagardens.org.

“We always love having Doris present her birds as part of the environmental education efforts of Shangri La. By teaching visitors ways they can help conserve and protect wildlife, we are hopeful to foster a sense of ownership for animals and our environment,” said Ellen Dacy, environmental educator at Shangri La. “S.O.A.R., Inc. is a delightful and informative program, which helps to ensure the future of these raptor species. The look of wonder and amazement on the visitors' faces as the birds fly overhead and truly soar makes this a one-of-a-kind event.”

Located at 2111 W. Park Ave. in Orange, Texas, Shangri La is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 409-670-9113 or visit www.shangrilagardens.org
