Bird exhibit almost ready at Chehaw

March 11, 2007

Albany - - A soon to open exhibit at Chehaw isn't just for the birds.

Sunday, animal expert Jim Fowler showcased several rare birds that will be featured at Chehaw's Birds of Prey Exhibit.

People will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with birds like the great horned owl, the red tail hawk from Mexico, and some falcons.

Organizers hope it will bring awareness to preservation.  

"Why is outdoors, open space, wildlife and wilderness important to human beings. If you don't link this with human welfare, we may not save anything the way its going. So that's one of the main missions here, to reconnect families and children back to the world of nature," Fowler says.

Chehaw started planning the exhibit last year. Fowler expects it to kick off by April.
