R is for Raptors

Yesterday, we took advantage of the long weekend for President’s Day and brought our Girl Scout troop to the Raptor Center. The girls were delighted to donate in person the $100 raised from their Valentine’s Day party last Sunday and the staff at the Minnesota Raptor Center was kind enough to give us a wonderful tour of the Center to meet many of the beautiful sick, injured, and healing raptors.  We learned quite a bit about these amazing creatures and had a great time.

We are so blessed to have such a great group of girls with such big hearts and involved parents who support the kindness and generosity of their daughters, not to mention the blessings of the amazing Raptor Center with its dedicated staff, volunteers, and donors.  The Raptor Center has many programs for groups such as scouts with tons of information found on this page.

Mark your calendars:  On May 5 between 11 AM – 2 PM there will be a Raptor Release event at the Hyland Park Reserve in Bloomington.
