Registration now open for 2016/2017 sessions

Youth RaptorCorpsAre you in grades 5-8, and interested in helping raptors, the environment, and developing into a budding naturalist? Join our youth service-learning club, Youth RaptorCorps!

Each meeting will include an opportunity to see live raptors up close and learn about their natural history, the environment we share, and how we can impact them.

Participants also engage in service-learning projects aimed at benefitting The Raptor Center's mission such as making American kestrel boxes, preparing raptor enrichment toys, packaging owl pellets, field research, maintaining our raptor gloves and equipment, making bookmarks/buttons, and public interpretation. (Note: topics and service projects subject to change.)

When

We meet from 4:00pm-5:30pm the second Monday of every month starting in October.
