Meet the resident raptors from Open Door Bird Sanctuary at Something Fishy in Egg Harbor on July 3, 2 – 4 pm, during Egg Harbor’s annual 4th of July celebration.

Volunteers and staff from the Sanctuary will be on-hand for a “meet and greet” program, showcasing their native and non-native birds. Learn fun bird facts as well as concerns the raptors face in the wild. There are artifacts for up-close viewing and hands-on activities. Also, measure your own wingspan and see how you compare with Door County raptors.

Staff members of Something Fishy will be giving out glitter tattoos for a $5 donation. All proceeds will be donated to the Open Door Bird Sanctuary.

The Open Door Bird Sanctuary is a private nonprofit organization on 34 acres in Jacksonport that focuses on raising avian awareness through education featuring many different native and non-native birds of prey. A future goal is to introduce rehabilitation services. Educational programming is available both on- and off-site through the greater Door County and Green Bay area.

Something Fishy is located at 7730 Highway 42 in Egg Harbor. For more information call 920.868.2083. For more information on the Open Door Bird Sanctuary, visit
