Tom Ricardi is a licensed rehabilitator and wildlife biologist and is retired after 40 years of service as a Massachusetts Environmental Fish and Wildlife game warden and now runs the Massachusetts Birds of Prey Rehabilitation Center in Conway, MA, caring for injured birds. He travels throughout New England and New York providing information aimed at helping people appreciate, respect, and assist in the conservation of these important raptors. There will be two, 30-45 minute presentations (one presentation for Pre-K - 2nd grade and another for 3rd - 6th grade) featuring some of his amazing raptors and may include a Golden Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Red-Tailed Hawk, Harris Hawk, Kestrel, Screech Owl, Great Horned Owl, and Eurasian Eagle Owl. Tom will share the natural history of these magnificent birds, demonstrate some of their unique behaviors and inspire children of all ages to appreciate, respect and conserve these important members of our wild kingdom. 

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Northfield Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
