I am continually amazed at the work that is underway at Hawk Creek, to protect wildlife. From constructing flight enclosures to offering rehabilitation courses to animal lovers, this wildlife center is always coming up with new ways to keep its inhabitants flourishing, and its visitors thoroughly informed.
As a way to attract new and old friends, Hawk Creek hosts a series of events that are not only captivating, they are enlightening. One of the upcoming events is “Enchanted Wild Fest,” where visitors, young and old, are treated to a wide assortment of wildlife-related activities, including plenty of enchanting meet ‘n’ greets with some entertaining characters.
“You never know who or what you’ll meet around the next corner, will it be a wild cat, a princess, an eagle, or even a superhero!? Journey through the Center to meet your favorite animals and your favorite characters. Animal encounters, activities for kids, games and characters await you!” – Hawk Creek
There is an ‘animal lover’ in all of us. Kids love visiting these types of thoughtful attractions, and so do adults. So be sure to get a ticket to the show, and discover the Hawk Creek treasure that is located right in our backyard.
