Eric from the Western Kentucky Raptor Center stopped by my show today to talk about their upcoming fundraising event and brought the cutest little Eastern Screech Owl along you've ever seen! Thor was a little nervous about his first radio appearance, but he did great! (Ok, he pooped on a plate and feathers were everywhere, but that's ok, haha!)

The center is holding a really neat fundraising event at the Western Kentucky Botanical Gardens Sunday, September 16th from 4:00pm - 8:00pm. The guests of honor include an American Kestrel, a Red Tail Hawk, Screech Owls and a Turkey Vulture!

This is the raptor center's annual fundraising event, raising funds to help support the rehabilitation efforts and operations of the center.

The evening agenda is as follows:

4-5pm Photos with the raptors

5-6pm Opening Remarks and Formal Introduction

6-7pm Dinner

7-8pm More Raptor Photos
