The National Elk Refuge is again partnering with the Teton Raptor Center to present a series of “Feathered Friday” visits this winter at the Jackson Hole & Greater Yellowstone Visitor Center, located at 532 N. Cache in Jackson. The programs, offered each Friday from 12:00-2:00 pm, will run weekly from December 23 through March 31. The informal programs will feature live birds of prey and allow visitors to learn about and photograph a variety of birds from an arm's length away.
