A Place Called Hope Presents “Just Hawks” at Kellogg Environmental Center, Derby

Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) invites families to a presentation on hawks on Saturday, July 15 at 11:00 a.m. at Kellogg Environmental Center, Derby.

A Place Called Hope will be on hand to present this special program focused on Connecticut’s daytime raptor, the hawk. Learn about their special adaptations and compare the various species of hawks up close and personal. All ages will enjoy meeting two live hawks from the raptor center and examining the collection of mounts found at the Kellogg Environmental Center. Plan to bring a picnic to enjoy following the program and use the trails and field to spot some raptors in the area.

This program is offered free of charge but donations are welcome. DEEP’s Kellogg Environmental Center is located at 500 Hawthorne Avenue, Derby, CT. For further information, directions, or to register, please phone the Kellogg Environmental Center at (203) 734-2513 or email
