Special Thanksgiving Programs

Join us Tuesday, November 20 and Wednesday, November 21 from 1-2 pm for our Raptors of Minnesota program!

Three of our raptors (such as owls, falcons, eagles, or vultures) will join you in our learning room while one of our experienced naturalists provides interactive discussion and demonstrations. The program also includes a tour of our facilities, including our education bird enclosures and our newly updated visitor center. The tour does spend a few minutes in our outdoor raptor enclosures, so please dress for the weather.

The Raptor Center will be closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday, and reopen for the weekend, with our regular tour and program schedule. Weekend hours are 12-4 pm. Tours run every half hour, starting at 12:30 pm with the last at 3:30 pm. The Raptors of Minnesota program runs from 1-2 pm both Saturday and Sunday.
