An organization that works to rescue, rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned birds of prey is set to hold its annual Christmas open house event next weekend.

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2, the public is invited to learn more about the inner workings at the Orphaned Wildlife (OWL) Rehabilitation Society, whose winged patients hail from all over B.C. – including the Semiahmoo Peninsula – and beyond.
