Get Ready for Raptor Weekend September 10-11, 2016

Here they come!  Eagles, Owls, Hawks and Falcons are headed to Bristol, Rhode Island on September 10 and 11, 2016. These rulers of the avian world have razor-sharp talons, highly developed eyesight and hooked beaks that rip and tear. They are also strikingly beautiful.

These raptors will be descending on the Audubon Society of Rhode Island’s Environmental Education Center in Bristol, Rhode Island for Raptor Weekend 2016. Wildlife rehabilitators and experts from across the Northeast will bring a wide variety of these extraordinary birds to the largest raptor celebration in New England.  Amazing and formidable birds of prey will be featured in live flight demonstrations, educational programs and activities for bird enthusiasts of all ages.

Asian Longhorned Beetle

longhorned_beetle_screen_shot.png

The Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) is an invasive insect that feeds on certain species of hardwood trees, eventually killing them. The ALB most likely came to the United States inside wood packing material from Asia. Since it was first discovered in Brooklyn, New York in 1996, the beetle has caused tens of thousands of trees to be destroyed in Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York.

If the ALB were to become established here, it could become one of the most destructive and costly pests ever to enter the United States. If we don't find and stop the ALB, we'll lose more than trees. We'll lose industries worth billions of dollars - and wildlife habitats too. Our yards and neighborhoods will take decades to recover.
