GRAY — Staff from Wind Over Wings, a raptor education center, will present a program from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at  the Maine Wildlife Park, Route 26.

Hope Douglas founded the nonprofit organization about 20 years ago. Recently relocated from Connecticut to central Maine, the nonprofit raptor education center’s goal is to provide audiences with close up opportunities to see and learn more about feathered predators.

Live birds featured at the park will include an American Kestrel, a diminutive Eastern Screech-Owl, a bold Common Raven and a Golden Eagle. Learn how each of these bird species are doing as populations in Maine.

All of the birds are ambassadors for their species, overcoming serious permanent injuries to lead them into their lives in education. Visit www.windoverwings.org for more information.

Summer Wildlife Days events for May will include Endangered/Threatened Species May 17, Friends of Maine Wildlife Park Annual Plant Sale Memorial Weekend May 24/25; and Archery with Bryant Pond 4-H Camp May 31.

Admission is free for ages 3 and under; $5 ages 4-12; $7 for adults and $5 for seniors. For more information, call the Maine Wildlife Park at 657-4977 or visit www.mainewildlifepark.com or www.mefishwildlife.com or on Facebook.
