Wildlife and Environmental Educator to Speak in Page
Martin Tyner, a nationally renowned wildlife and environmental educator, will visit Page on December 10 and give three public presentations on wildlife rehabilitation and birds of prey.
Mr. Tyner, a resident of Cedar City, Utah, is founder of the Southwest Wildlife Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to wildlife rescue and environmental education. He has been involved in wildlife rehabilitation and education for nearly 40 years and has spoken to schools, scout troops, and community groups throughout the western United States. Mr. Tyner will be speaking about his work in wildlife rehabilitation and how he founded the Southwest Wildlife Foundation.
Mr. Tyner will be accompanied by three birds of prey, including a magnificent Golden Eagle named Scout. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to see birds of prey in person and to learn about their rescue and rehabilitation. The public is welcome to attend any of Mr. Tyner’s presentations at the following locations:
Desert View Elementary 1:30 – 2:30p.m.
All visitors to the school presentations please stop at the front office to receive a visitor’s pass.
