We all hope others might make the trip as well to enjoy some sun, fun and perhaps a stroll under the London Bridge.
All are welcome to contact our Volunteer Critter Webgeek who lives in Havasu for more information.

The Southwest Wildlife Foundation offers “Birds of Prey”, an exciting educational program. The audience enjoys beautiful slides of wild raptors, while Master Falconer and educator Martin Tyner teaches about these majestic birds. Identification, hunting, nesting behaviors and our shared environment are among the topics discussed in the presentation.
- Martin’s program features “Belle” the Harris Hawk, “Helen” the Peregrine Falcon, and “Scout” the golden eagle.
- The program includes a powerpoint slide show with beautiful photographs taken by Martin of a great variety of birds of prey found throughout the western United States.
- He teaches the differences between hawks, falcons, eagles, vultures and owls through fun stories he tells as the slides are shown.
- After the slide show Martin brings out his live birds, one by one, saving the Eagle for last. He will tell more stories of wildlife rehabilitation and answer questions during this time. Do birds have a sense of smell? How good is their eye sight? How fast can they fly? How does he train them? And many more questions!
- This event is co-hosted by the Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah and Lake Havasu Water Savers!
Lake Havasu City Water Conservation Specialist, Briana Morgan, will be joining us with information about the Havasu Water Savers and water saving information and opportunities.
