Flights of Fancy


Fall is a time of change; leaves are turning, children are back to school and birds are migrating. Currently, AIWC has 20 Swainson’s Hawk patients in care for reasons ranging from head trauma and broken wings sustained from car collisions to rodenticide poisoning. Please help to support their rehabilitation process which means getting them up, up and away in time for their September migration!

Tickets to our Flights of Fancy Fall Migration Event are available at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/flights-of-fancy-tickets-36937730747?utm_term=eventurl_text

Thank you for your support!
