Nonprofits flock together: Fontenelle Forest buys Raptor Recovery Nebraska
Betsy Finch, one of three part-time employees at Raptor Recovery Nebraska, heads to the flight pen March 6 in Elmwood to get a snowy owl. The bird, rescued in Omaha in November, was moved to a Minnesota center in preparation for its release. The employees will become full-time after Raptor Recovery merges with Fontenelle Forest.
