My exxperience with Eable Valley Raptor Ctr has been multi-faceted. Watching the release after a bird has been rehabbed has brought tears to my eyes..I have cheered each time Ken and Susan have planned a new project at the Center and then always completed it with the involvement of the entire community...scouts, college students, retirees, corporations. I have learned to love each bird because Ken shares such heartfelt stories and pictures from Raptor Care. The educational demonstrations at the schools and wildlife centers are one of the most popular in Sedgwick County. Their work is invaluabe to the community of Wichita and the community of Birds of Prey.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my relationship with the bird world in general and specifally our birds of prey..feeding and providing shelter to the birds in this area.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
add more volunteers and more areas of shelter for the birds.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the scheduled releases that Ken shares with the community when the birds are ready to fly again.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
enthusiastic and very caring
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
it could branch out over the entire US and work in cooperation with other State Universities, and the Dept. of the Interior.
Ways to make it better...
I had had more time to volunteer and more money to contribute.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
lack of funds
One thing I'd also say is that...
there is noone more caring and loving of his birds than Ken Lockwood
