Meet birds of prey at local libraries
Gina Holt of Wild About Birds will share information about owls and falcons during free programs at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the New Smyrna Beach Regional Library, 1001 S. Dixie Freeway; and 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Ormond Beach Regional Library, 30 S. Beach St.
She will bring along some of her feathered friends and discuss their natural habitats, the dangers they encounter, and the conservation efforts being made on their behalf.
During the Ormond Beach presentation, a member of the Halifax River Audubon will explain the society’s mission to foster understanding and care of the environment.
Holt’s presentations are part of the Volusia County Public Library's NEA Big Read, a six-week celebration of “A Wizard of Earthsea,” a 1968 fantasy novel by Ursula K. Le Guin. The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
