Winter Raptor Fest 2020

SEE live owls, hawks and falcons up close and in flight at Grassland Bird Trust’s 10th annual Winter Raptor Fest!

EXPLORE a trail through the WILD Encounter to MEET and learn about most of our native raptors in the “natural” habitats they depend on for their survival – keep an eye out for live fox, fisher, porcupine and other animals along the way!

NEW Arctic habitat in the WILD Encounter – see Short-eared owls, Snowy owls and other raptors on their Arctic breeding grounds!

Horse-drawn “Birding” wagon, Raptor photo booth, kids’ activities, “For the Birds” store, food vendors and more round out this exciting weekend where raptors rule! All activities take place under cover except Birding wagon; event will be held rain or shine.
