The goal of this program is for pre-schoolers to develop a positive relationship with raptors and the environment.

Our annual Duke Lecture is October 12, at 4:00pm.  We are very excited that Dr. Scott Lanyon, Head of the University of Minnesota’s Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior and former director of the Bell Museum, will speak on the Tree of Life. Dr. Lanyon will lead us on an exploration of how scientists study the evolutionary relationship of life on earth, with special emphasis on birds. We’ll find out more about the Tree of Life project, a collaborative effort of biologists and nature lovers from around the world.

This event is free and open to the public. It is intended for those with a general to intermediate knowledge of birds. RSVP's are required, and this event does fill quickly! RSVP here
