The Cargill Foundation recently awarded The Raptor Center a $315,000 grant to expand STEM education in the Twin Cities using Raptor Lab, an online learning platform that puts raptors at the center of scientific education and exploration.
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.
Spruce was first found in 2018 on the side of the road along the north shore of Lake Superior. Raptor Center staff and volunteers selected her name because saw-whet owls live in the northern boreal forests, where spruce trees are abundant.
