"The Greater Yellowstone Raptor Experience" is coming to the Rockpile Museum on Saturday, February 9, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.! Melissa Hill, Assistant Curator of the Draper Museum of Natural History at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, WY, will be bringing four of her feathered friends to visit the museum and help us to understand the predator/prey relationship while learning the special characteristics that allow raptors to succeed in nature and ultimately learn just how difficult it is to be a wild animal – predator or prey!
