Educational Opportunity - Raptor Pellets For Sale!!

Photo by Nikki Herbst Raptor pellets ... basically, they are the leftovers of what the raptors ate in a given day, in a neat little package.  They are full of fur, bones ... etc. While some people may put this into the "yuck!" category, others will find it a fascinating learning opportunity. If you have a scout group, science class, or other inquisitive minds, we can help you have the unique experience of investigating raptor pellets!

The pellets sell for $0.75 each, plus shipping (if applicable). Send us a message with your contact information and address to, or call us at (319) 248-9770 between 8 AM and 6 PM.

RARE at Seize the Carp!

This past Saturday, July 16, RARE volunteers presented an educational program at Seize the Carp!, an outdoor festival hosted by Take A Kid Outdoors (TAKO).  The event, held at Iowa City's Lower City Park, was geared toward promoting fun and healthy outdoor activities for kids and adults alike.  To everyone's delight, RARE volunteer Joan and her assistant Emily presented an educational program with Regi, a great horned owl, and Gonzo, a turkey vulture.  Thanks, TAKO, for having us! Gonzo the turkey vulture catches some morning rays.
