Join the staff at Audubon Center at Riverlands for this Birds of Winter program! It may be cold outside, but it’s always 70 degrees inside the center. Two story circular bay windows provide a 140° grand vista of the Mississippi River, where you may see eagles, trumpeter swans, and other fascinating waterfowl. The TreeHouse Wildlife Center will be at the Center with a rehabilitated raptor. It could be an owl, hawk or falcon – stop by the Center to see who shows up!

Times: 10 am - 2 pm

Free
