Raptor Encounters – Thursday, July 31 at 1

Join us Thursday as the VINS NATURE CENTERsearch presents Raptor Encounters: Live falcons, hawks and owls provide the lens through which we examine food webs, predator-prey relationships and the interdependence of the systems that support life. This first-hand encounter enables participants to understand the defining characteristics that make a bird a raptor and their adaptations for life as a predator on the wing. Touchable artifacts and hands-on materials round out this special experience.
