Iowa Raptor Project

Back to Previous
Iowa Raptor Project's mission is to connect students and the community to the conservation of birds of prey and their natural habitats through research and education opportunities. IRP is a jointly sponsored program of the University of Iowa Recreational Services and Kirkwood Community College. They achieve goals to preserve raptor populations and habitats through educational experiences that awaken awareness, nurture appreciation and inspire action, as well as through field research on raptor nesting habitats, migration routes, and wintering grounds. The Iowa Raptor Project is open to the public and currently displays 17 unreleasable birds of prey historically found in Iowa.
