wildlife revealed november 3rd program for Mecklenburg Audubon Society
MAS presents: Wildlife Revealed with Kevin Gaines
Thursday, November 3rd at 7:15 PM (Refreshments begin at 6:45 pm)
Tyvola Road Senior Center, 2225 Tyvola Road, Charlotte, NC 28210

Swoop into our November membership meeting to meet the avian ambassadors from Wildlife Revealed! Mecklenburg Audubon will host Kevin Gaines, owner, operator and Master Falconer of Wildlife Revealed, a non-profit organization dedicated to the education and conservation of our planets wildlife. Kevin is in town for the annual seasonal run of the Carolina Renaissance Festival and will bring some of the feathered cast from his Birds of Prey and Falconry Demonstration. For over a decade he and his birds have presented for the Carolina Renaissance Festival with a team of volunteers including our very own Board Member Christy Hill.

Outside of his time spent in North Carolina, Kevin travels across the county educating and entertaining audiences at numerous Renaissance Festivals, birding festivals and school programs. He has performed his Raptor Revealed Program at venues such as the Galveston Texas Featherfest, Moody Gardens, Hawkwatch International, Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain Georgia, Stone Mountain in Atlanta, Silver Dollar City in Branson Missouri and for hundreds of school programs for children nationwide. Kevin will share his up-close and innovative approach of capturing audiences and making connections with nature through the idea of “Edutainment”- promoting education of the natural world with an entertaining twist to create a memorable and up-close connection. Kevin holds a B.S. in Engineering from Texas A&M University. He resides in Bastrop, Texas with his wife and six-year-old son/apprentice and lots of Legos.

As always you can learn the importance of purchasing Bird Friendly® coffee to help our migrating songbirds through our conservation coffee project. Pre-ordering is available at this meeting for delivery at the next MAS meeting.

Join us Thursday, November 3rd at the Tyvola Senior Center (2225 Tyvola Road.) at 7:15 PM. Refreshments and fellowship from 6:45 PM. Although we offer disposable cups, if you think of it beforehand, please consider bringing your own cup or mug to ease the burden on the environment. Ice will be provided. Birds and Beans Bird Friendly coffee will be available too!
