On Sunday, June 23 at 1:30 p.m., Bald Eagle Awareness Days will be hosting a program in our theatre. The Outdoor Campus program is one of three statewide taking place from June 21-23, rescheduled from original dates in February.

Following programs in Madison and Pierre, educators from the Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota will be bringing live birds of prey to The Outdoor Campus. Last year’s program brought four birds to The Outdoor Campus for a presentation, and more than 1,200 people attended birds of prey programs for BEAD statewide.

The event’s goal is to increase public involvement and awareness about bald eagles and other birds of prey across all age groups.

No preregistration is required for the event on Sunday, and seating is limited, so arrive early to get in on this fun learning opportunity.

This weekend marks the twenty-first consecutive year of BEAD. For more information on BEAD, visit http://gfp.sd.gov/outdoor-learning/bald-eagle-awareness-days/default.aspx?utm_source=iContact&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=GFP%20News&utm_content=

We hope to see you Sunday.
