The Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower in Hartford is hosting an event featuring birds of prey. From 1-3pm, the Treehouse Wildlife Center will feature some of the large birds aside from the eagle that nest in the Riverbend. This is the third event in the "Eagles over the Confluence" series.
The event will be informal, so guests can come and go as they please. Tower Manager Amy Curry says eagles get much of the spotlight around here, but this event will shine a light on other birds, like owls and hawks.
The tower is offering a special program every Saturday in January and February. In the coming weeks, there will be wood carving and Native American programs offered at the site along Route 3 in Hartford. The event is free, but there is a charge to go up in the tower.
