The Peregrine Fund's World Center for Birds of Prey will begin its 10th annual fall bazaar on Friday, 24 November, at the Velma Morrison Interpretive Center. The event will feature more than 100 gift baskets filled with handcrafted items from volunteers and donated items from local Treasure Valley businesses. A hand-made quilt and a framed Thomas Mangelsen image will also be available for a silent auction. The bazaar will end on Saturday, 10 December. All proceeds from the event will benefit The Peregrine Fund's education program.
The Velma Morrison Interpretive Center will be open 10-4, Tuesday-Sunday during the winter months (November – February). The facility is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Just 15 minutes from downtown Boise on South Cole Road, the Center features a variety of eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls on display, including the California Condor, Harpy Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, and Bateleur Eagle. Complete with interactive displays, multimedia shows, and live bird presentations, the facility is the only one of its kind in the area.
