WILDLIFE WATCHING — A nifty program on the wonder of hawks and owls will be presented Saturday (Sept. 24) near Coeur d'Alene at the Blackwell Island Boat Launch and Park.

Beth Paragamian and  West Valley Outdoor Learning Center will have live raptors as well as mounted specimens.  They will give a presentation focusing on Raptor Migration. 

Afterwards they plan to make s’mores and give attendees a chance to see the birds up close and ask questions.

The presentation starts at 6:15 at Blackwell Island, which is just outside of Coeur d'Alene on Highway 95.  Just after you cross the Spokane River heading south on 95 you will see the entrance on the right. 

There will be no charge for parking at the facility as it is also Public Lands Day and all BLM recreational user fees are waived for this day.
