Birds of Prey Show with Marla Isaac at the MBL Club

WOODS HOLE, MA—Marla Isaac from New England Reptile and Raptor will bring her birds of prey show to the MBL Club, 100 Water Street in Woods Hole, on Wednesday, August 3 at 7 PM. During the show, Marla will illustrate the lives of these "aerial hunters" through a discussion of the natural history, biology, adaptations, habitats, poaching, and falconry. She will also discuss the management of these animals in the wild and how the laws and regulations protect them. The raptors that Marla will use to demonstrate in this exhibit will be a turkey vulture, a red tailed hawk, a red-shouldered hawk, an osprey, a barn owl, a barred owl, a falcon and a great horn owl. The event is part of the MBL Club’s Wednesday night family entertainment series. Admission for members is free. Non-member admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children.
