The Ohio Bird Sanctuary on Orewiler Road in Mansfield held its annual Fall Family Festival over the weekend.

From children's activities and crafts, to walks on the Raptor Trail and bird keeper talks, the event gives those attending an up-close look at the sanctuary's birds.

Ohio Bird Sanctuary Executive director Gail Laux says proceeds will fund roof renovations on the bird of prey display enclosures.

Laux says they are still working on their Capital Campaign to renovate a dining hall on property purchased by the sanctuary from the Boy Scouts in 2009.

Proceeds from the fall festival also support the Ohio Bird Sanctuary's educational programming and for the care of its many birds.
