Raptors will be the highlight at the Walker Tavern farmers market Sunday, June 7. The historic site near Brooklyn, Michigan, will offer a program featuring these birds of prey from 2 to 3 p.m. at the conclusion of the farmers market.

“This will be a rare opportunity for the public to see some of these great hawks up close,” said Walker Tavern site historian Laurie Perkins. “The conservation and recovery group sponsoring the event helped to rescue a hawk at the historic site a few summers ago. Ever since, everyone has wanted to learn more about hawks.”

The hawks only can be exhibited for a limited amount of time, so those planning to go to the event are encouraged to arrive early and enjoy the farmers market before the program begins. The program is free and open to the public.

Walker Tavern is one of 11 nationally accredited museums administered by the Michigan Historical Center, an agency within the Department of Natural Resources. It is located at the junction of U.S. 12 and M-50, east of Jackson. For more information, visit www.michigan.gov/walkertavern.
