Sunday, June 5, 2011,  is a day dedicated to children, raptors and the environment at Green Chimneys in Brewster, where the annual With Wings and a Prayer: Birds of Prey Day takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For nearly two decades, Birds of Prey Day has offered families a chance to get “up close and personal” with majestic eagles, hawks, owls and falcons. This year’s event features more than 100 birds of prey, with falconers from across New York and Connecticut. The day also includes live animal presentations by prominent wildlife specialists, tours of the Green Chimneys Farm and Wildlife Center, and fun family activities for all ages.

Renowned experts and animal friends include Jim Fowler from Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom; Bill Robinson of Wildlife Lectures; Brian Bradley of Skyhunters; James Eyring of Pace Environmental Center; a live wolf from the Wolf Conservation Center; and Erik’s Reptile Edventures for hands-on encounters with amazing reptiles.

Admission is $15 for adults and $5 for children 3-11 and seniors. The event is free for children 2 and under, and a family pass costs $35. Everyone receives a 20% discount with a Metro-North ticket, and proceeds benefit the children and animals of Green Chimneys, a non-profit organization.
