Come visit the Indiana Room at the Huntington Library Tuesday, June 14th to find out! Begin your family research on Family History Day, when the Indiana Room will provide resources and instruction on how to begin the search for your family’s Hoosier legacy.

Potentially dating back as far as 2,000 BC, falconry is an old but still popular form of hunting. Come learn about hunting with trained birds of prey Wednesday, June 22nd at 6:30pm at the Huntington Library for the Introduction to Falconry program. Library staff member and austringer (meaning he hunts with a hawk instead of a falcon) Kirk Strass will discuss the basics of falconry, techniques, tips for starting, and general bird of prey information. A real bird of prey will also be on hand. The program is free, but due to the presence of a live raptor, the program is for adults only.
The Huntington Library is located at 255 West Park Drive, Huntington.
