         Festival of the Owls will be held on Saturday, October 26th, 2019 at Humane Indiana Wildlife’s Valparaiso campus.  Tickets and an event-day program are available online at humaneindiana.org/events.

     The day-long event will feature live owl presentations, a chance to make-and-take an owl nest box, hands-on learning activities, a self-guided nature hike, and more.

     The enclosure provides large birds of prey—such as hawks, owls, bald eagles and vultures—with enough room to maneuver and build up flight muscles, an important part of recovery for an injured birds.

    “Once they have recovered, the enclosure allows them the proper flight time to build their muscles before we release them,” Kadletz explained.
     “It is really critical to any bird to have proper flight time before it is released, so it can sustain flight and hunt properly.”

     The enclosure was built thanks in part to the Porter County Wildlife Management Advisory Board, which appropriated $30,000 toward the structure’s construction. 
    There will be an Auction of the Hand Painted Owls.
