Learn about Flint Creek Wildlife's work of saving the lives of injured and orphaned birds in the Chicago area. Flint Creek Wildlife's Director, Dawn Keller, will talk about some of their past patients including the baby Bald Eagles that fell from a nest in Batavia, were raised in captivity and then released at Starved Rock State Park and Journey,the Ferruginous Hawk that traveled 1,500 miles stuck in the plow of a freight train before being found at a Chicago-area rail yard. Dawn will be joined by some of Flint Creek's amazing education birds of prey….no promises yet but perhaps even Journey will make an appearance! Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation, which operates locations in Barrington and Chicago, is a private not-for-profit wildlife rehabilitation and education facility that is state and federally licensed. Flint Creek Wildlife provides medical care, food and housing for injured and orphaned wildlife with the goal of returning fully rehabilitated wildlife to its natural habitat. Flint Creek Wildlife is funded solely through donations and does not receive and state, federal or local government funding.
