Daena Ford, President, bringing rehabilitated raptors to Hunt Country. Daena has been working with Braddock Bay Raptor Research for 30 years. She has worked with raptors in both research and educational settings, both of which help the community learn more about the birds and the environment we share with them. She currently holds education permits to care for 4 non-releasable raptors, which are used in programs conducted both on site at Braddock Bay and throughout the community. Daena is an engaging educator and being able to absorb her knowledge and see the raptors up close is an amazing treat.
