Carpenter Nature Center is fortunate to be the host for the Fall Raptor Release, presented by the 3M Foundation in partnership with The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota and CNC. Visitors will enjoy watching 4-6 wild birds of prey take to the air after being rehabilitated by The Raptor Center’s veterinarians.

The day is full of fun including orchard hay wagon tours, educational raptors on display from The Raptor Center, kids activities and more. This is a FREE event.  Bring your blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the day, but for this event, please leave your pets at home.
