Peregrine Falcon Event in Harpers Ferry May 2
Posted: 04/15/2014

The Harpers Ferry Community Center is hosting a peregrine falcon event on May 2, beginning with a fish fry from 4:30 – 7 p.m., followed by a falcon program at 7:15 p.m. The community center is at 133 S. 4th St., in Harpers Ferry.  Admission is a free will offering.

This provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this rejuvenation and to learn more about peregrine falcons.

There will be no river trip this year as the Maiden Voyage that has provided tours is being replaced.  Watch for the return of this popular program next year. For further details contact or 712-330-0526.
