BRUNSWICK — The Brunswick Unitarian Universalist Church and Cathance River Education Alliance are joining to co-sponsor a special event. The program, from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 1, will feature Wind Over Wings founder Hope Douglas.

This is a special presentation about eagles, their character and their stories of courage after injury. The program will be held at the newly rebuilt Brunswick Unitarian Universalist Church, 1 Middle St.

Those attending will meet Golden Eagle Skywalker and hear about the two injured bald eagles currently being cared for at Wind Over Wings. Featured also will be three other live birds, the Eastern Screech Owl, the American kestrel and Zachariah the common raven.

Douglas founded the nonprofit organization Wind Over Wings about 20 years ago. Wind Over Wings brings birds into classrooms, homes, conference centers, auditoriums and places of worship for environmental education programs.

Birds in their care are unable to survive in the wild. Each of them inspires with their stories of courage, adaptability and resilience. Programs are conducted by trained educators.

The program is free and family friendly. There is limited church parking. It is also an opportunity to see the new church, which has been rebuilt after a fire on June 6, 2011.
