Raptors of the Western Cascades
Oct 12 - Oct 13
This ancient rainforest is a beautiful and peaceful place. But everywhere around us, the web of life is being woven, with one genus at the top of the pyramid: birds. These unique creatures are the predators of the sky, holding reign over a kingdom only they can visit. Raptors have developed many different adaptations to succeed in the giant, multi-layered canopy of Opal Creek. Not only are they an integral part of the ancient forest, they played an important role in saving Opal Creek from deforestation. Join us to learn about the hunters of the sky, how to identify these giants soaring overhead and even meet them up close! Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center will partner with the Cascades Raptor Center to present this exciting and educational workshop for the whole family, in one of the last true wilderness areas.
