Visit Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center’s Discovery Theater for two showings of the S.O.A.R., Inc. (Saving Our American Raptors) bird program to learn about American raptors.

Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., visitors will get an up-close look at four types of raptors and learn about their habitats. This program will be led by Doris Mager of S.O.A.R., Inc. A $1 donation is requested from each attendee. All donation proceeds go directly to S.O.A.R., Inc. Seating is limited and an RSVP is required.

During the show, Mager will discuss the unique adaptations of each bird along with their different habitats and food sources. Attendees will learn how Mager became involved in the important task of American raptor conservation.

Families are invited to be part of this delightful evening program and visitors will see a raptor fly over the audience.

“It’s always a thrill to watch the interaction between Doris and countless children that watch in amazement as she talks about her care of raptors,” says Ellen Dacy, Environmental Educator at Shangri La.

Located at 2111 West Park Avenue in Orange, Shangri La is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5:00p.m.
