Juneau Raptor Center to host annual public open house

Don't get ruffled by feathered friends of the Juneau Raptor Center when the group holds their annual business meeting and open house on Saturday, March 24 at the Nugget Mall.

That's because the birds may look fierce - and they are - but they're purely to teach.

The business meeting will begin at 11 a.m. From noon to 2 p.m. the open house will feature education birds, door prizes for kids, refreshments and information on the raptor center.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information contact Pat, 364-3389.
