Special Events

Throughout the year BPRC has many fundraising and ‘friendraising’ events to support its mission. This includes the annual Ribs n’ Raptors fundraiser, Raptor Photo Day, evening paint-a-raptor parties and much more. Please join us at these fun and educational events to help BPRC continue to grow.

There will be many more events coming up so please check back frequently.

Resounding Harmony

Be a part of a wonderful weekend of song, celebration and education! The non-profit group Resounding Harmony will be putting on a choral concert in the future with the proceeds going to Blackland Prairie Raptor Center. Resounding Harmony is an all-volunteer chorus that selects two deserving non-profits each year to receive this amazing gift – songs to inspire, and the profits going to the organization.  There will be songs, our education ambassadors will be introduced throughout the event and we will be fundraising to support BPRC.

Please check back for concert dates and ticket information.
