Raptor Feeding
Saturday, July 20, 2019 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Ages: All ages
Free
Join LSNC raptor staff for feeding time for the birds. During this hour, watch staff prepare and give scrumptious raptor food — and yes, that does mean dead mice and rats!- to the birds housed on our site, including wild owls, hawks and eagles.  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, and discover more about bird anatomy. Come join our raptor staff, and ask questions regarding the birds and other ways you can learn more about them!

Fireside Fun- A Good Old-fashioned Campfire Circle
Sunday, July 21, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Ages: All ages
Free

There's nothing quite as relaxing as sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and swapping stories. One Sunday a month, we'll be stoking the fires here at LSNC. March-November, we'll provide a blazing outdoor campfire and plenty of marshmallows. Bring your family, friends, camp chairs, outdoor games, and s'mores fixings. December-February, we'll have an indoor fire with hot cocoa and tea. Bring a blanket to sit on, board games to play (we'll have some too), and sledding gear if there is snow. Outdoor fires are held rain or shine (except for thunder and lightening), so come dressed for the weather.

No registration is required.
