Heavy rains can’t drown out Spring Fling at Dunbar Cave

 

The Friends of Dunbar Cave held their annual spring fling event at Dunbar Cave State Park on Saturday May 1st 2010. The wet weather resulted in a lower than expected turnout,  however a good number of people still showed up to take part in the festivities.  Many of the events were moved indoors to the Visitor’s Center Audio Visual room which while not very big, still allowed Save Our American Raptors (S.O.A.R.) to fly some of their wonderful raptors.Having the opportunity to see these birds of prey up close up is always a thrill for everyone who attends.
