CANCELLED: The Falconer and Birds of Prey, June 1, 2022
FALCONER PROGRAM CANCELLED DUE TO BIRD FLU REPORTED IN WOODINVILLE (Posted June 1; 4:15 p.m): Unfortunately, we just heard from John The Falconer. He received notification a few minutes ago from WSDA that bird flu has been detected in Woodinville and the area has been named as a target zone.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, but we want to make sure the birds and raptors remain safe. Please notify any of your friends and/or family members who would have joined you this evening at 21 Acres in case they don’t see our messages or social posts.
Please jot a note to firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions.
We’ll do our best to reschedule, perhaps during one of the upcoming summer months.
Regards, The SV Grange team
