- Up to
Fall Open House at FACT
October 23, 2013
The CSU Bakersfield Facility for Animal Care and Treatment (FACT) invites the community to their free fall open house on Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 1-4pm in the Environmental Studies Area.
Tours of FACT will feature talks and demonstrations with live birds of prey, including hawks, owls and a golden eagle. CSUB Biology students will assist visitors in making a recycled journal and participate in a scavenger hunt. Members of CSUB's 60+ Club will sell nature gifts, T-shirts, note cards, coloring books, zoo books, and other items.
FACT is a wildlife rescue/conservation education project founded in 1975 by Ted Murphy, CSUB emeritus professor of biology. FACT students and volunteers care for hundreds of injured or orphaned birds of prey and conduct tours of the facility and classroom programs for thousands of Kern County school children each year. FACT is supported by the annual barbecue, members of Friends of FACT, and the sale of gift items.
To get to FACT, enter campus on Roadrunner Drive from Camino Media Boulevard. Turn right into Parking Lot I and, at the softball field backdrop, follow the dirt road over the bike path to the parking area.
