Join us September of 2021 as the University of Minnesota’s Raptor Center releases rehabilitated raptors to the water, prairie and forest of the Carpenter St. Croix Valley Nature Center. 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.
Here is what was enjoyed in previous years:
This FREE event runs from 10 am – 1 pm, with bird releases at 11:00 am..
The day is full of fun including orchard hay wagon tours, educational raptors on display from The Raptor Center, kids activities and more. Bring your blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the day, but for this event, please leave your pets at home.
This event would not be possible without the support of generous donors. Please consider sponsoring this event! For more information, contact Erika.
