World-class birder Kelly McKay will present a workshop on Iowa Raptors on Thursday, March 18th from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at The Swiss Valley Nature Center. This program was postponed from February.

Raptors are known for their abililty to capture live prey with an array of tools such as razor sharp talons and hooked beaks. Eagles, hawks, kites, falcons, and owls are all considered raptors. Vultures are often considered raptors as well.

Funding for this workshop was provided by the Resource Enhancement and Protection-Conservation Education Program. This workshop will be conducted by Kelly McKay (BioEco Research and Monitoring Center), with assistance from Mark Roberts (Clinton County Conservation) and Brian Ritter (Nahant Marsh Education Center).

Registration is required to staff the program adequately. This program will be indoors and masks will be required.
