Eagles, Owls and Hawks Camp!

Please join us for a week-long camp at Richardson Nature Center and The Raptor Center - Eagles, Owls and Hawks, Oh My! It is from Monday, August 22 - Friday, August 26. This unique camp brings together The Raptor Center educators and the Richardson Nature Center naturalists to offer you this expansive birds-of-prey discovery. Three days will be spent at Richardson Nature Center meeting live raptors, spending time in their habitats to observe their behaviors, mimicking their hunting behaviors with a predator/prey game, and learning some of the responsibilities of care and maintenance of injured birds. For two days, campuers will be bussed to TRC to gain exposure to some veterinary techniques to help injured birds, and get hands-on training in operant conditioning, a practice used to train animals.

Register here, or call The Raptor Center at 612-624-2756 for more information.
