The Raptors of Minnesota - All Ages

60 minutes

This exciting program, based on Minnesota and national science standards, is a learning experience your group will not soon forget. This program is ideal for groups or interactive family events. We explore the different raptors found in Minnesota 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 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.
