NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will have a special program that will serve as the Nature @ Noontime Program. The TWRA’s Biodiversity Division will serve as a co-sponsor for the “Wings to Soar” raptor program to be held on Wed., Feb. 12 at 1:30 p.m. in the Ed Jones Auditorium (The Barn) which is located at the Ellington Agricultural Center.

Nature @ Noontime is usually held the first Thursday of each month at the TWRA’s Region II Ray Bell Building.

The TWRA is co-sponsoring the program along with Belmont University. “Wings to Soar” is a non-profit environmental organization that cares for non-releasable birds of prey. The “Wings to Soar” program will entertain the audience by combining music, video, and live birds of prey. 

According to the “Wings to Soar,” “The goal of the program is to inspire, for a long time after it is over. Hopefully, a seed will be planted that will grow into a whole new connection to the natural world.”

Hosted by the Information and Education Division, Nature @ Noontime is held each month with the exception of July. TWRA Nature @ Noontime presentations are about natural resources related topics and last about 30-45 minutes, allowing time for discussion during the allotted lunch hour. Contact Don King (615) 781-6500 or by e-mail: don.king@tn.gov for more information.
