Looking for a fun summer activity for the kids? Mountsberg Conservation Area’sDouglas G. Cockburn Raptor Centre is sure to thrill. It’s home to 15 different species of native birds of prey, many of whom have permanent injuries which have left them incapable of surviving on their own in the wild, including eagles, falcons, owls, hawks and vultures. Birds of Prey shows are held twice daily through Labour Day at 12 and 2 where visitors can see the birds up close and ask questions. Shows are held outside in the netted flyway behind the Raptor Centre, weather permitting. In case of rain, shows are held inside the Raptor Centre. Want the ultimate beak-to-nose experience?
