WEST FALLS, N.Y. -- Hawk Creek Wildlife Center is opening for the season this weekend at its new location with an event that will offer some "wild" experiences. 

A flying bird show and up-close animal encounters with a variety of critters will be among the activities at Hawk Creek's Wild Earth event. 

The event is Saturday, May 6 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Hawk Creek's new location --1963 Mill Road in West Falls. Hawk Creek requests guests still park at  its old 655 Luther Road, East Aurora location.  A shuttle bus will take attendees to the new location.
