Cedar Run is putting a new twist on an old favorite. Instead of one family fun-filled day in September, we’re introducing Re-Discovery Weekends all month long for nature lovers of all ages! Visitors can join us for Friday night campfires and storytelling, Saturday nature days and guest speakers, and Sunday canoeing, tours and guided hikes. Fees cover a full day of activities. Come for one thing, or see it all!
Events scheduled for Saturday, September 5th – Celebrate Raptors on “International Vulture Awareness Day”
- 10am or 11am: Raptor Rendezvous – Ever wonder what it is like to care for our resident raptors? What do they eat? How do we keep them from getting bored? Join us for a rare glimpse into the world of raptor feeding, care, and enrichment during this exciting and engaging program.
- 11:30am: Vulture Culture – Bones, Skulls and Skins, Oh My! Come check out the different animal artifacts Cedar Run has in their collection and get hands on with this “Vulture Culture.” Who’s teeth are those? Where’d that fur come from? Learn about how artifacts such as these are preserved and more. Explore the refuge in search of animal evidence and test your investigation skills.
- 1pm: Resident Animal Meet & Greet – Get up-close and personal with some mystery resident animals. Questions and photos welcome!
