Raptor Meet-and-Greet

Live raptors perched outside the museum! This program includes three live raptors on display with two highly trained educators. Participants can ask questions, take photos, or just relax and watch the raptors.

Established in 1974 as part of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, the Raptor Center rehabilitates more than 700 sick and injured raptors each year, while helping to identify emerging environmental issues related to raptor health and populations. An internationally renowned education facility, the Raptor Center trains veterinary students and veterinarians from around the world to become future leaders in raptor medicine and conservation, and also reaches more than 200,000 people annually through its unique public education programs and events.
