Come visit the center located at 1801 D Street, Hayward. Its hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
You are invited to see the center's turkey vultures, who live there year-round, and learn about the important role they play not only in the local eco-system but around the world.
Children will also be able to make a vulture-themed craft to take home.
If you want to learn more about these fascinating birds before you make your visit to the center, you can read about them on the official Vulture Awareness Day website here.
