Raptor Project Returns To Olean May 8
The Raptor Project, featuring live eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls will return to the Olean area with a 7 p.m. show on May 8 in Cutco Theater on the Jamestown Community College’s Cattaraugus County Campus.
Sponsored by JCC’s campus program committee, this popular event is free and open to the public. For information, contact Mike Marvin at 376.7586.
Jonathan Wood, master falconer and wildlife rehabilitator, has trained and handled raptors for over four decades and created an exciting, award-winning show.
The birds, ranging in size from small falcons and owls weighing three ounces to majestic eagles with eight-foot wingspans, are from every habitat on the planet including Arctic, desert, rainforest, wetlands, prairie, woodlands, and tundra regions. Many have been rehabilitated from injuries or handicaps and tamed as trained ambassadors for their species.
