- Up to
Winter Open House at FACT
November 26, 2013
Tours of FACT will feature talks and demonstrations with live birds of prey, including hawks, owls and a golden eagle. CSUB Biology students and volunteers will assist visitors in making a recycled journal and participate in a scavenger hunt. Visitors will also have the opportunity to make a small bird feeder that can be hung in the trees at FACT or taken home to feed the birds in their own neighborhoods. 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. For more information, please visit http://www.csub.edu/fact/.
