Birds of Prey
Festival-goers get to meet hawks and owls up close and personal. Hurt in the wild and now cared for by Sharon Audubon, these magnificent birds are the ambassadors for their species. It is a great opportunity to learn about these wonderful aviators and the Audubon’s work in rehabbing and releasing them. Check them out on Facebook or the web.



Tasty Food
An abundance of lunch options, tasty snacks, and great beverages were available as folks browsed our festival.
