Bring the whole family to this free program to meet live raptor ambassadors from the Raptor Center of Minnesota of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities on Feb. 9 from 11 a.m. until noon at the Great River Road Visitors and Learning Center at Freedom Park in Prescott.
The program explores the different raptors found in the Midwest and their role in the environment. Participants learn the three key features of all raptors and learn why they are different from other birds. We discuss the positive and negative impact humans have on our environment, and participants are inspired by some of our greatest environmental success stories, such as the peregrine falcon and the bald eagle. Finally, we will learn about The Raptor Center and its important role in protecting raptors and the world we share. Everyone leaves feeling inspired and empowered, having learned specific things they can do to help protect raptors and the environment.
