The People of Chattacon 

All guests of honor, panelists, performers, presenters, artists or any other individual who may present in some way at Chattacon are booked in good faith and we have their guarantee that they will appear when we announce they will be at the convention. However, unforeseen events (illness, family emergencies or production work) may cause a particular guest to cancel. 

The Glen Helen Raptor Center

Glen Helen Raptor Center

The Glen Helen Raptor Center is part of the Glen Helen Association, a non-profit organization. The Raptor Center operates two core programs; education of raptors and their role in Ohio ecosystems, and rehabilitation of injured raptors with the goal of release back to the wild.

The Raptor Center offers a wide variety of educational programs, and operates the Miami Valley’s only raptor rehabilitation clinic admitting around 200 sick or injured birds of prey yearly.  Through its education and rehabilitation efforts, the Center reaches thousands of people giving them a greater understanding, appreciation, and concern for raptors and other wildlife.
