Peregrine Falcon: Grand Opening Weekend
From Endangered Species to Urban Bird
An exhibition developed by the Bell Museum of Natural History at the University of Minnesota
On view Saturday, June 1 through Sunday, September 29, 2019
In an unprecedented turn of events, peregrine falcons were listed and then removed from the endangered species list within two decades. Discover the incredible story of the citizens, scientists, and birds that brought the species back from the brink of a human-caused extinction—and explore ways we can help peregrines and other raptors to survive and thrive.
