LUNCH AND LEARN

RAPTOR RESCUERS

  • Thursday, July 19
  • 12 – 1 pm
  • Velma and Gary Rowles, Presenters

Picking up and transporting injured hawks and eagles to veterinary care, rescuing an owlet that has fallen from his nest, holding a young female bald eagle before tossing it in the air to freedom – all in a day’s work for University of Minnesota Raptor Center volunteers, Velma and Gary Rowles.  This raptor rescuing duo is called into action about twice a month on average.  Learn about the work of the Raptor Center and how volunteers steer clear of predator’s flesh-tearing beaks and talons.

  • Cost:  No charge for members; $5 for non-members.  Attendees are welcome to bring their own brown bag lunch.  Coffee will be provided.  Call the VACC at (507) 386-5586 by 7/18 to register.
