Vienna Finley ES K-Kids (Kiwanis Kids)

The Vienna Finley ES K-Kids (Kiwanis Kids) hosted Leslie Grow, Hardy Lake DNR, and Jerry Williams, Friends of Hardy Lake, to learn more about the Dwight Chamberlin Raptor Center at Hardy Lake.  The students are planning a project to support the Raptor Center and the presentation helped them better understand it’s mission and needs.  Pictured is Leslie Grow speaking to the K-Kids at their meeting.  The Raptor Center helps injured Raptors heal so they can be returned to the wild.  They take in about 60-100 injured animal patients each year.  If an animal is too injured to return to the wild, it becomes a permanent resident at the Raptor Center and is then used for demonstrations and presentations for educational purposes.  They have eleven permanent raptors who live at the center.  The Raptor Center provides food, housing and medical supplies for these injured animals.  Food for these animals averages out to be approximately $1.50 per day.  Leslie brought several animals with her for the kids to see and learn about including a screech owl, Kestrel hawk, barn owl and a Peregrine Falcon.  The barn owl is now an endangered species.  If someone thinks they have a barn owl, they can call Hardy Lake and someone will come out to provide advice on how to make a better habitat for the owl.  The Kestrel hawk can see ultraviolet colors that humans cannot see, helping them locate their prey easier.  The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest animal in the world and can dive at speeds of 220 miles per hour.  The K-Kids enjoyed the presentation and appreciated Leslie and Jerry coming to the school to meet with them.  The Friends of Hardy Lake are all volunteers who help out at the Raptor Center and raise money through cheese ball sales, bake sales, raffles and breakfasts at Hardy Lake between April and November.  They accept monetary donations but also have a list of items they need that can be donated on the Friends of Hardy Lake website.  The K-Kids are sponsored by the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club to develop leadership skills through community service.  It’s a student led organization that elects it’s own officers and decide what projects they would like to support.  VFES K-Kids are one of the Kiwanis family of clubs in Scott County Mrs Katie Sawin is the Faculty Advisor, Al Riggle and Eric Mullins are the Kiwanis Advisors.
