Raptors centre gets medieval in Cowichan Saturday

The team at Pacific Northwest Raptors is pulling out all the stops for their Medieval Day fundraiser this Saturday.

Along with flying demonstrations with the avian team at the centre, located at 1877 Herd Rd. just outside of Duncan, the day will feature such things as archery and swordplay, storytelling, prizes for best costume (so come dressed to impress), and sessions on lotions and potions with "Hedgewych Wylds".

The day runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The event is designed to raise funds for the Raptor Rescue Society’s raptor rescue hospital. The hospital is the only one of its kind in Cowichan.

"We recover, treat, rehabilitate and return injured raptors to the wild," said organizers. "The hospital opened this spring and through the efforts of dedicated volunteers, 37 raptors have been rescued and treated."

Entry for adults is $14, with seniors and youth getting in for $12 and children admitted for $7. See www.facebook.com/TheRaptor RescueSociety for more.
