Great HornedCSUB's Facility for Animal Care and Treatment (FACT) is hosting its FREE monthly open house from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 5, in the Environmental Studies Area at California State University, Bakersfield.

Visitors can see a variety of local birds of prey including red-tailed hawk, Swainson's hawk, great horned owl, barn owl, and golden eagle as well as songbirds, turtles and frogs. Visitors will also learn about FACT's animal rescue program, and kids can participate in a nature scavenger hunt and make a recycled journal.

CSUB students and staff will give tours and demonstrations of birds of prey. Educational gifts and souvenirs including two newly-designed T-shirts, zoobooks, coloring books, cards and other educational materials will be available for purchase to support the non-profit wildlife rescue and education program.

FACT's mission is to serve as a wildlife rescue, conservation and education project for CSUB. FACT hosts an open house on the first Saturday of each month October through May.
