As part of the 2012 Arizona Science and Technology Festival, the program “Rescued Flight: Raptor Rehabilitation” will be hosted at the Gilbert Community Center, 130 N. Oak Street, on March 13.

The program, slated for 7:30 p.m., will include presentations on live eagles, owls and hawks.

The volunteers of Liberty Wildlife will allow attendees to visit with rescued hawks, eagles and owls to demonstrate the resilience and care required of Arizona’s unique birds of prey.

The physics of bird flight also will be discussed.

Cameras are allowed, but flashes are prohibited.

Attendees also can learn about volunteer opportunities with Desert Rivers Audubon including the Burrowing Owl release, scheduled for March 31 in Gilbert.
