Birdfeeder, bird food giveaway planned
PLAINFIELD, Ind. – Some majestic birds will be visiting Hendricks County on Earth Day Friday, April 22.
The Duke Energy Foundation is sponsoring the American Eagle Foundation’s “Birds of Prey” program at 1 p.m. at Sodalis Park in Plainfield.
The captivating program features several species of birds, including eagles. It’s an up-close and dramatic look at some regal wildlife. The event is free and open to the public.
In addition to the performance, Duke Energy employees will be assembling and distributing free birdfeeders and bird food beginning at 1 p.m., while supplies last.
Employees are also partnering with Hendricks County Parks and Recreation that day to remove invasive honeysuckle and repair walking paths at the park.
“Our employees volunteer year-round, but in the spring the company shines a light on volunteerism and encourages us to roll-up our sleeves and support grassroots, community projects,” said Duke Energy Indiana President Melody Birmingham-Byrd. “There are dozens of projects planned as diverse as our employees themselves, and they make a difference.”
Duke Energy Indiana’s operations provide about 7,500 megawatts of owned electric capacity to approximately 810,000 customers in a 23,000-square-mile service area, making it the state’s largest electric supplier.
