JRC grateful for grant that’s for the birds

Thanks from the Juneau Raptor Center to the Great Blue Heron Fund at the Juneau Community Foundation

The Juneau Raptor Center (JRC) recently was awarded a grant from the Great Blue Heron Fund at the Juneau Community Foundation. We are honored to be the recipient of this grant. As many of you know, the Great Blue Heron Fund is one of many funds established through the Juneau Community Foundation by generous donors who want to make a difference in Alaska.

These monies will be used to purchase frozen quail to feed our education birds. These include two red-tailed hawks, one gyrfalcon and one barn owl. The quail also feeds many other birds that come to JRC for rehabilitation and eventual release. This grant will be a huge assist in caring for all these birds.

We are very grateful for the grant and honored the work done by all our dedicated volunteers is recognized in this fashion.
