Raptor Day At Okeeheelee Nature Center

Friends of the Okeeheelee Nature Center will host Raptor Day for nature photographers on Saturday, Jan. 18 from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at the Okeeheelee Nature Center in Okeeheelee Park.

Several different species of birds of prey will be on display in a natural, outdoor setting. Every effort will be made to place the animals in optimal lighting with attractive backgrounds. The rehabilitated raptors will be on natural tree branch perches, and photographers are free to photograph at their own pace. A naturalist will be stationed alongside each bird to provide information and answer questions.

Reserve your spot by calling the nature center at (561) 233-1400 or by visiting the nature center during regular operating hours. Tickets will be sold for $25 each for an hour and an half photography session with the birds. Ticket quantities are limited. All proceeds from this fundraising event will benefit the programs and exhibits at the nature center.
