To the Editor:
The Rainforest Festival steering committee would like to publicly thank the Petersburg Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Alaska Community Foundation, for their recent grant to our organization. We will add those funds to contributions from Partners in Education and other donations to bring two raptors from the Sitka Raptor Center to visit our town during the festival September 5-8. Besides the festival, the birds are also scheduled to make appearances at all three schools and long-term care. We are excited to be able to provide this awesome learning opportunity to so many members of our community.
