OLD LYME — On Saturday July 30, the Old Lyme (OL) Land Trust will host displays of live reptiles and rescued raptors at the Midsummer Festival.

Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center will bring their snakes, turtles, eels and friends to the OL Land Trust tent on the lawn of the Lyme Art Association from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Get up close to these denizens, even to the point of holding some in your hands!

From 1 to 3 p.m., A Place Called Hope will present rescued and rehabilitated eagles, owls, and hawks and talk about how these birds are saved and the care they receive.

These displays have been very popular at past festivals. The presenters are both informative and educational, and are happy to answer any questions about our forest and wetlands neighbors.

The displays will be located at the main entrance to the Lyme Art Association.

Information about the Old Lyme Land Trust, including trail maps will be available.
