Today we spent time at the Mid-South Raptor Center, a non-profit located on the Agricenter campus.  Dr. Martin told us all about the injured birds of prey and how they are found and rehabilitated back into the wild. They treat over 200 birds a year using only volunteer help and donations for bird food.
