The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine will release rehabilitated raptors back to the wild this Saturday, May 4 at the Hyland Lake Park Reserve in Bloomington, Minn. The free and public event will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with interpretative programming beginning at noon.
Event-goers are invited to meet some of The Raptor Center’s education birds and watch the release of other rehabilitated birds back to the wild. The all-ages event will have family-friendly activities including nature and craft projects available throughout the day.
Please bring used ink-jet printer cartridges to the event for The Raptor Center’s Recycling for Raptors program. Photography is allowed. However, for the safety of the raptors, no pets are permitted.
