Thank you for helping inspire and educate over 1,200 people this weekend! Experts from the World Bird Sanctuary in St. Louis brought seven birds of prey, plus a raven to Minnesota to teach people about conservation. The program was presented seven times at the Nature Center and three times in local schools. This event would not have been possible without the help of our many sponsors, volunteers and “Friends of CNC”.
Below are just a few of the photos taken over the weekend. Please see our Facebook page for more great pictures. All the following photos were taken by Chris Mueller & Kristy Clarke of Journey Photography (http://www.journeyphotomn.com/)
