  • P3030047.JPG Bald Eagle Day held Approximately 1,200 people attended the Bald Eagle Day event held over the weekend at Central College and Lake Red Rock. People from at least 44 different communities were in attendance. Those attending got an up-close look at a live bald eagle and other raptors. Staff from the University of Minnesota’s Raptor Center shared amazing details about how these birds “make a living.” Environmental Educator Mike Havlik presented the program, “Big Owls Hoot, Little Owls Toot” and “What Do Birds Have to Teach Us?” during the event. Other event highlights included the Pella Wildlife Company’s live bat shows, incredible wildlife photography by Ron Huelse, information about the new eagle nest cam at Red Rock, kids craft activities and an “environmental fair” featuring numerous environmental groups, agencies and other vendors.
