Live raptors to be showcased at Interstate Park

April 1, 2015

The “Friends of Interstate Park” invites all to its annual “Spring Gathering of Friends” on Tuesday, April 28, at the Ice Age Center at Interstate Park, located in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin.

Featured this year are live raptors from the Raptor Center of the University of Minnesota.  Learn from a raptor education specialist all about raptors of Western Wisconsin, their role in the environment and success stories, such as the bald eagle.

Featured again this year is the addition of a children’s program from 6-6:30 p.m., “Especially For Kids: Our Feathered Friends,” an interactive experience for the children to learn what makes a raptor unique. After the children’s program there will be free refreshments followed by an hour-long program for all ages, “Raptors of Minnesota,” beginning at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about and view live raptors, and learn more about  the Friends of Interstate Park.

The Friends of Interstate Park is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting a greater appreciation of the human and natural history of Interstate Park by enhancing the park’s interpretive program.
