Inclement weather has grounded eagle awareness events planned in South Dakota this Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The Raptor Center in Minneapolis had planned to travel to South Dakota to provide educational programming as part of Bald Eagle Awareness Week. However, the potential for bad roads has made travel ill-advised and the group will not be making the trip.
The cancelled events include an event at The Outdoor Camps-East in Sioux Falls on Thursday, school presentations in Madison on Friday, and at the Pierre Ramkota on Saturday
An event in Rapid City will go forward as planned. The Outdoor Campus-West is hosting a “drop-in” day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. MST on Saturday. All ages can participate in hands-on stations featuring all things birds-of-prey. Black Hills Raptor Center will participate in the drop-in day and conduct a public presentation with live birds of prey at 1 p.m. MST.
