Repairing Flight Pens 4-6

Project: Flight Pens 4-6 Repairs
Projected Cost:  $5,000
Status: Completed March 2021

Flight Pens 4 – 6 are an important set of flight enclosures, designed for recovering hawks and large owls.  Measuring about 40 feet in length, these spaces allow raptors to exercise daily and to recover their flight strength and stamina in preparation for release back into the wild. 

These flight pens, and several other outdoor enclosures, are threatened by wild raccoons and skunks that try to dig under the existing fence and framework.  To protect the enclosures and their occupants, the Center will bury fencing underground, to deter these predators.
