Conserving Carolina and the Landrum Library invite the public to attend a free program entitled Hunters in the Sky” presented by naturalist and educator, Carlton BurkeThe program will be held at the Landrum Library, 111 East Asbury Drive Landrum, SC, oTuesdayJuly 9 at 11:0a.m.  


Throughout the ages, birds of prey have fascinated mankind. Unfortunately, some people have also viewed these magnificent birds with disfavor because of their predatory instincts. Uncontrolled shooting, trapping, loss of habitat, and pesticide poisoning have all combined to drastically reduce their numbers, some to the brink of extinction. Now, thanks to protective regulations and increased public awareness, many of these raptors are making dramatic comebacks. In this program you’ll meet some live raptors and learn about their day to day struggle to survive in our constantly changing world. This presentation is part of the Landrum Library’s Summer Reading Program for children. The program will feature live raptors as guests and will be a great program to bring your children to! 


This lecture is part of Conserving Carolina’s monthly Speaker Series at the Landrum Library and it is made possible thanks to a grant from the Spartanburg Community Foundation and the Friends of the Landrum Library.   


The next program will be held on Thursday, August 22nd when naturalist and storyteller, Doug Elliott, will present “Wild Tales-Strange but True Adventures in the Natural World,” at 6:3p.m. This program is best for adults and children who listen like adults.
