The World of Bears and Raptors

Have you seen an American Kestrel, Turkey Vulture, or Red-Shouldered Hawk up close?  Would you know what to do if you found an injured bird?  Have you ever wondered if a bear is standing on its hind legs does this mean it is about to charge?  Or if a bear is approaching you in a forest, is it better to play dead or climb a tree?  Lastly, have you always wanted to see a Black Bear from a safe distance?  Join us as we visit the Wisconsin Black Bear Education Center and the Raptor Education Group, Inc. both wildlife sanctuaries in Central Wisconsin.
