Meramec State Park welcomes World Bird Sanctuary for Raptor Basics Program June 13

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, JUNE 11, 2020 – Meramec State Park invites the public to “Raptor Basics,” a special program presented by the World Bird Sanctuary, at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, June 13. Come out to learn why these birds are so special, what you can do to help ensure their survival and what role they play in our environment. Although none of the birds will fly, the birds will be on the gloves of a World Bird Sanctuary naturalist.

The program will be held at the Meramec State Park amphitheater. No pets, including leashed dogs, may be present at the program.

Visitors should follow social distancing guidelines, come prepared with hand sanitizer and bottled water, and please stay home if sick.
