We’ve explored the myths and we’ve got the facts. Dragons are a worldwide cultural phenomenon, compelling since the beginning of time, immortalized in legends of both fear and wonder- and for one day only, they won’t be shy!

Hawk Creek Wildlife Center, Inc., located in East Aurora, New York will be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 28th, 2006. This is a rare and captivating opportunity to witness over ninety of Hawk Creek’s live birds of prey and mammals, since the center is not open to the public. More information available on our website:

www.hawkcreek.org. Prices are $5 per adult, $4 for seniors, and $4 for children under 12. Tickets are available online or at the gate.

Don’t miss this chance—Hawk Creek’s amazing wildlife includes hawks, owls, falcons, vultures, eagles, wildcats and much more! Get up-close and personal encounters with local and exotic wildlife. Stand face to face with our national symbol, the bald eagle, in our Walk with the Eagles enclosure. You will also be able to meet the Center’s rarely seen mammals, including two bobcats, a Siberian lynx, African servals, our endangered North American ocelot named Laguna and Misu the playful River otter.

Rain or shine, Here Be Dragons is a great chance to learn all about the real dragons of the world. See them up-close, along with other nocturnal hunters that go bump in the night! Hawk Creek volunteers will add to the fun in costume! We invite the public to arrive in costume as well and participate in our Halloween Costume Contest!

Hawk Creek is the 41st accredited sanctuary in the United States, by The Association of Sanctuaries. Our work has been featured on Late Nite with Conan O’Brien, National Geographic, and PBS. For more information, visit our website at www.hawkcreek.org.
