Do you get sleepy when the sun goes down? Don't worry - we created a program just for you to learn about all the critters that are busy while you sleep. We will explore their habitats while the sun is up and then go inside to learn about some of the specimens in our lab. You can get to bed early and still not miss out on meeting these incredible animals! 

This session is cancelled. Please join us for the evening session!

This program is discounted for all LSNC Members - membership is $50 annually, and includes your entire immediate family. Become a member now, or read more about benefits here.

Join LSNC raptor staff every second Saturday of the month for dinner time. During this hour, you can see staff prepare scrumptious raptor food for our wild owls, hawks and eagles — and, yes, that does mean dead mice and rats! This is a great time to see the birds doing their most natural behavior … eating. This will also be an opportunity to touch feathers, see a hawk or owl pellet, discover more about bird anatomy and ask our expert staff questions regarding the birds and other ways you can learn more about them!
