A typical program involves birds such as the red-tailed hawk, peregrine falcon, American kestrel, screech owl, great horned owl, barn owl and black vulture, and discussions include their characteristics and habitat, as well as a description of why these particular birds cannot be released back into the wild. Lasting between 25 minutes and an hour, the program ends with a look at our habitat and our interrelationship with the environment. As well as having some birds on show, the festival will feature a full night of activities including Celtic Fusion dancing, African drummers, bellydancers and wares sold by artisans from Dallas-Fort Worth and the surrounding areas. Providing a full day of family entertainment to support other nonprofit organizations, R.E.L.E.A.F.'s festival benefits are a great way to show support for groups that are working to preserve our natural environment and its wildlife.
