If you’re in the Chicago area–looking for an educational, fun activity for your kids this coming weekend–I suggest the upcoming Citizens for Conservation (CFC) presentation of Meet Your Local Raptors!

Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation will bring live birds and talk about local raptors. Children attending the class will also make holiday nature gifts.
