Skamania Lodge brings back Birds of Prey Program in June

By Terry Richard
The Oregonian

A great horned owl is a widely seen bird of prey. This owl was displayed by the Portland Audubon Society at Sauvie Island.

Guests and visitors to Skamania Lodge can observe first hand some of the most magnificent birds in the world and learn about the important role they play in the environment. The lodge's free Birds of Prey Program will take place every weekend this summer from June 15 through Aug. 25.

The show is on the lodge's front lawn, where guests and visitors can look an owl in the eyes, be inches away from a bald eagle or see a falcon in flight. The lodge is one mile west of Stevenson, Wash., about 45 miles east of Portland via Bridge of the Gods.

This is the third year the lodge has offered the program to teach about the importance of these creatures in the environment.

Volunteers from the Raptor House Rehab Center in Yakima captivate audiences with up to eight different raptors, including a bald eagle, barn owl and a ferruginous hawk. Raptor House is a nonprofit company that rescues injured wild birds and returns them to the wild.

Show times are scheduled for 5 p.m. on Fridays and 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturdays. For exact start times, it is recommended attendees check the lodges' online event calendar at: www.skamania.com/event
