The highest, freestanding truffula tree was 26 inches tall! They had lots of fun collaborating as a group. They could only use their paper plate, marble-size clay, 8 spaghetti noodles, and 17 mini marshmallows.
MN Raptor Center Visits Tri-County
On Friday, March 3, the Tri-County School district was honored with the presence of some very special visitors. Along with their presenter, Max Borge, were a Red-Tail Hawk, an American Kestrel, a Great-Horned Owl, and a Bald Eagle. All the raptors were brought to Tri-County from the University of Minnesota Raptor Center through a grant that allows them to offer free programs to schools. The Raptor Center is a non-profit organization that rescues, rehabilitates, and releases about 1,000 wild eagles, hawks, and owls each year. They also work to foster an appreciation for wildlife and the environment through their educational programs featuring ambassador birds that are unable to be released.
All Tri-County students had the opportunity to learn about what the Raptor Center does, the natural history of the birds, how humans can help with conservation efforts for raptors, and unique information about the four species of birds presented. Each bird was presented one by one, giving all of our students a unique chance to view the raptors up close on the presenter’s glove. For some students, the highlight was watching the owl eat a mouse whole, while for others it was seeing the regal presence of one of America’s symbols up close.
Tri-County would like to say thank you to the University of Minnesota Raptor Center for providing this opportunity to our students.
Congrats to the Northern Freeze boys for winning the North Star Conference Championship Friday!
