Merry Christmas to all and to all it’s COOKIE EATING TIME!
Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 2:00pm all our little Cookie Monsters gathered in the Trinity Center dining hall to exchange, sample and talk about all things sugary and sweet. Let us share our employee holiday spirit with you!
If you have ever been to Trinity Center before you know that our staff likes to feed you and we feed you well! I don’t think anyone walks away hungry and there are always plenty of choices. Today for our cookie exchange party we had pies, breads, cakes, cookies, muffins, cheese balls, chips, and our famous homemade Trinity Bread!
The Holiday Peppermint Cookie ~ obviously everyone’s favorite because they were GONE! Yummo! Find the Recipe HERE! (Cookies made by Mindy Furrer, STS Program Director)
You have raptors? You mean dinosaurs? There are dinosaurs at Trinity Center? Well, not exactly dinosaurs but yes, Trinity Center is home to five raptors. A raptor or bird of prey is a bird that hunts other animals and is distinguished by its keen eyesight, strong talons and hooked beak. For over 17 years, the Sound to Sea (STS) Environmental Education program has cared for and utilized the resident rehabilitated raptors for educational programming. Each raptor on property was injured in the wild and was unable to be released back into the wild after rehabilitation. The birds are strictly education birds and are included in regular STS school programming, Road Scholar, and numerous other Trinity Center conference events.
- During presentations, each raptor is attached to a qualified STS staff’s gloved hand and held for viewing. The presence of the live bird enables the instructor to highlight the unique characteristics of each raptor and also talk about their injuries and conservation measures.
Current birds on property include an American Kestrel (1), a Barred Owl (2), two Eastern Screech Owls (3), and a Red-tailed Hawk (4). If you are interested in learning more about raptors or would like to include the birds for your upcoming programming at TrinityCenter, please contact Trinity Center Program Director Mindy Furrer.
