Join the Friends of Boyd Hill and the City of St. Petersburg Parks and Recreation Department for the 10th Annual Raptor Fest! Raptor Fest allows Friends of Boyd Hill to continue its support of the Boyd Hill Nature Preserve Birds of Prey program. This important program not only provides a forever home for non-releasable native birds of prey; it educates thousands of residents and visitors each year about the need to protect these incredible animals that play an important role in our ecosystem. Your donations and sponsorships go directly to the care and feeding of these birds, and enable us to offer outreach and education programs with them.
