International Vulture Awareness Day
Saturday, September 3 • 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
The first Saturday of September has been set aside as a day to consider the ecological importance of a bird of prey that is otherwise mostly dismissed with a shudder. With some species under severe threat of extinction, International Vulture Day aims to educate a reluctant public about this creature's critical role in the well-being of the environment.
