This is our annual event that features the incredibly unique vultures in our area. Here is your opportunity to see one of the largest winter roosts of vultures in the state. The event includes hourly presentations featuring Socrates, a live turkey vulture from the Springfield's WOW museum. There will also be indoor games, trivia, and activities. Outdoors you will get to see wild vultures roosting near the hatchery. Staff and volunteers will help you view the vultures with spotting scopes. The last presentation begins at 4 pm
