Friends of The Raptor Center
Dorothy Kelly is the TRC volunteer with the longest number of consecutive years volunteering. She first joined us in October of 1982 when her daughter invited her to a volunteer interest meeting.
While there is currently no scientific evidence that raptors can contract or carry the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19, the pandemic has impacted us at The Raptor Center (TRC) in a number of ways.
The Raptor Center (TRC) is collaborating with Matthew Bonner, PhD, research scientist at Medtronic, Inc., on creating a physiological way to measure stress in raptors.
Kelly Auxier, digital communications specialist on the Advancement team at the College of Veterinary Medicine, prepares to release a juvenile bald eagle in Red Wing, Minn., on December 20.
Mark your calendars! On Give to the Max Day, the first $54,000 of gifts raised for The Raptor Center (TRC) will be matched by three loyal donors. These funds will be critical in helping TRC provide food, care, and world-class medical treatment to injured and ill raptors.
The late spring and summer months are commonly filled with stories reflecting unique challenges young raptors face once they leave the safety of their nests. In mid-August, the clinic admitted a young male osprey that fledged from its nest near a local gravel company.
