26th Annual Farm/City Night To Feature Raptor Program
The Clark County Extension Council annual Farm/City Night is scheduled for Saturday, February 19, at the Clark County Middle School in Kahoka. The evening will begin with a free soup and sandwich supper, provided and served by Clark County Farm Bureau from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The Farm Bureau is accepting a free-will donation of a canned good item that will be given to the Ronald McDonald House. Also at this time, Clark County businesses and organizations will have displays set up for viewing by the public.
The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. This year we are excited to have the World Bird Sanctuary from St. Louis, MO provide their Raptor Awareness Program. The program features birds of prey including falcons, hawks, owls and vultures. Not only will you see different species of raptors, but you’ll also learn a vulture’s secret weapon and how to identify a bird of prey in the wild. You will have the opportunity to view the birds up close as some of the birds soar right over your head!
Farm/City Night was started by the Clark County Extension Council during the farm crisis in the mid 1980′s. The Council wanted a way for farm families, local businesses and individuals to have a free evening of enjoyment and an opportunity to share mutual appreciation of the total contribution each makes to the community.
Local and area businesses provide financial support and numerous door prizes for this event. Farm/City Night is free of charge and open to the public. “University of Missouri Extension Programs Are Open To All”
