Oregon Elementary School students got a special treat on Monday, May 12 from some special friends of our feathered friends.

Hoo Haven volunteers brought live birds to the school to kick off the Mt. Morris and Oregon libraries’ summer reading programs “Paws to Read”— an exploration of the wonderful world of animals.

Hoo Haven is a wildlife rehabilitation and education center in Durand.

Volunteers from Hoo Haven showed the students a live barn owl and turkey vulture in addition to other birds.
