University of MN – The Rapture Center

1:00 & 3:00 pm shows scheduled on the Free Stage

 

Established in 1974 as part of the University of MN College of Veterinary Medicine,

The Raptor Center rehabilitates around 1,000 sick and injured raptors each year,

while helping to identify emerging environmental issues

related to raptor health and populations.

 

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.
