Admission to the park will be free for this event.  Silent auction items will be provided by artists and merchants from the Brown County/Bloomington area.  You mustt be present to win auction items.

We will have presenters from 4-5 raptor rehabilitation and education centers, with 10-12 species of birds and a very special guest.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased by sending a check to Indiana Raptor Center, PO Box 1153, Nashville IN, 47448.  Tickets can also be purchased using a credit card by calling 812-988-8990.  Tickets will go out a few days after payment received; late purchases may be picked up at the door.

There may be tickets available at the door, but don’t count on it!  Order early to insure success!!!

Thanks in advance for your patronage, which supports both our permanent and patient populations.  Patient numbers are up this year due to the number of baby and juvenile raptors displaced by Indiana’s wet and stormy spring and summer.  Please help us care for them and the balance of wildlife in Indiana, as well as for our almost 30 education ambassadors, exhibit, falconry and foster parent birds that support our public education and raptor rearing efforts.

Besides – the Rendezvous is just plain FUN!!
