The WSU Raptor Club, located on the Washington State University campus in Pullman, WA, is a non-profit volunteer organization founded in 1981, whose purpose is to educate the public about the conservation of raptors. Special permits for non-releasable injured raptors allow the club to take these birds to a great variety of audiences such as libraries, schools, service organizations, etc., for educational purposes. This allows the club to spare the lives of these magnificent birds and familiarize the public with living representatives of various raptor species.

Kids, teens and adults alike will count this February 21 visit to the Colfax Library as a must-see FREE program. For details, please call the Whitman County Library toll free 877-733-3375 or visit online at the Whitman County Library website.
