    ST. CROIX FALLS, WI - The Friends of Interstate Park invite you to their annual "Spring Gathering of Friends" on Tuesday evening, April 28, at the Ice Age Center at Wisconsin Interstate Park. Featured this year are live raptors from The Raptor Center of the University of Minnesota. Learn from a raptor education specialist all about raptors of our area, their role in the environment and success stories, such as the bald eagle.

    Featured again this year is the addition of a children's program from 6-6:30pm, "Especially For Kids: Our Feathered Friends," an interactive experience for the children to learn what makes a raptor unique. After the children's program there will be free refreshments followed by an hour-long program for all ages, "Raptors of Minnesota," beginning at 7:00pm in the auditorium.

    Don't miss this opportunity to learn about and view live raptors, and learn more about the Friends of Interstate Park. Everyone is welcome!
