Press Release – NATCHITOCHES, LA – Cane River National Heritage Area, Inc. (CRNHA) will host a show and tell experience at Los Adaes State Historic Site on Saturday, June 16, 2018 featuring birds of prey from Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park.

Senior Park Naturalist and Manager, Rusty Scarborough will give visitors an up close and personal look at various species of owls, hawks and falcons. With amazing eyesight, quick thinking and deadly accuracy these spectacular birds are sure to capture visitor’s attention. “Some of the most beautiful predators on earth are our birds of prey. Visitors will be fascinated as they get to see these birds and listen to an expert handler tell you about the extra special qualities of each species,” commented Michael Mumaugh, CRNHA Heritage Ranger.

Throughout the day visitors will be able to borrow binoculars to get a better look at the wildlife located on the grounds of Los Adaes SHS. There will also be a drawing activity for visitors who want to draw the animals they discover.
