Welcome Back Vulture Day! - March 14, 2013

Come out this Saturday to celebrate the beauty of vultures during Welcome Back Vulture Day at Leach Botanical Garden.

 

Turkey Vultures are fascinating creatures. Large nostrils allow the vultures to smell their prey from 2 miles away! During the winter months, vultures migrate to warmer climates. As spring approaches and the weather warms up, the city is welcoming the birds back home.

 

Leach Botanical Gardenis hosting a family-friendly event beginning at noon on Saturday. Enjoy making arts and crafts, learning fun vulture facts, and meet Ruby, the Portland Audubon’s Turkey Vulture.
