To cap off Oakley’s weeklong celebration of science, Ironhouse Sanitary District and Delta Science Center will be giving people a chance to see these birds up close and personal with a live bird show on April 15 via the Lindsay Wildlife Experience of Walnut Creek. Lindsay’s team of experienced wildlife professionals will be on hand talk about the birds, their life in the wild and important things that kids want to know, like how big a hawk’s talons really are and are owls really that wise. Crafting activities will also be available for the children to work on while waiting for the bird show and tours.

The event will be held at the Ironhouse Sanitary District main offices, 450 Walnut Meadows Drive in Oakley.
