Chocolay Raptor Center opens
CHOCOLAY TOWNSHIP, MI (AP)-- Officials are celebrating a new bird rehabilitation facility in
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Wednesday afternoon for the Chocolay Raptor Center. The center is a place where birds that have sustained injuries in the wild can be nursed back to health.
Founder Jerry Maynard is trained to rehabilitate and care for the birds, but says he's also focused on sharing with others his passion for rehabbing raptors. Four cages have been set up, thanks to donations from the Marquette Breakfast Rotary and Wisconsin Energies.
Maynard says plans are in place to add new cages to the raptor center to allow for more birds. Thirty birds have already come through.
