Run for Raptors

The Juneau Raptor Center (JRC) is very grateful to all the students who participated in this year’s Run for Raptors on May 11 at Twin Lakes. We are so appreciative for the money the students raised to take care of all the many kinds of birds that come to JRC for treatment. All of you did a fantastic job. Many thanks also to Gastineau Elementary and Juneau Community Charter School’s physical education teacher Dirk Miller for again organizing this event.

Also helping to organize this event was recently-retired Gastineau Elementary School nurse Janet Capito. This year Kathy Benner and gyrfalcon Phil attended.

We greatly appreciate everyone’s support!

David Wetzel, President
