Students Meet Raptors and History

Raptor Visit

On Feb. 13, 2017, the WMC  hosted a sold-out program for more than 250 Milwaukee school students to celebrate Lincoln’s birthday. They heard from a Civil War reenactor John Thielmann, who told them aboutOld Abe The War Eagle,” Wisconsin’s most famous bald eagle and mascot to the 8th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment during the Civil War. Representatives of the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center made that history come to life by introducing them to real raptors.
