All ages will enjoy the live educational birds and mounted specimens used during the evening presentation to provide participants a “bird’s eye” view of the many species of raptors and owls that live in and around the northern Idaho area. The event is free, and a great opportunity for a fun-filled family evening outdoors.
The program begins at 6:00 pm on September 29 at the BLM’s Blackwell Island picnic pavilion. Blackwell Island is located just across the Spokane River south of Coeur d’Alene along Highway 95. Parking fees will be waived for those participating in the evening event.
For additional information about the evening presentation, please contact BLM wildlife biologist Carrie Hugo, 208-769-5048; or Suzanne Endsley, public affairs, 208-769-5004.
