The Raptors of North Texas Return on Nov. 17

Presented by the Friends of the Coppell Nature Park

​​On Saturday, November 17, members of the Black Land Prairie Raptor Center will return to Coppell’s Biodiversity Education Center to discuss how hawks, owls and falcons make North Texas their home. Plus, they will feature a live "Raptor" as part of the presentation and will also explain how these powerful predators search for food. The program starts at 10 am. Admission is free.

“There is no better way to learn about birds of prey than to meet them in person,” says Erich Neupert, executive director of the Black Land Prairie Raptor Center.

Sponsored by Friends of Coppell Nature Park, this program will inspire both adults and children to think actively about ways to help preserve these beautiful birds within their native prairie environment. The Black Land Prairie Raptor Center is dedicated to environmental preservation through public education and the conservation of birds of prey and wildlife in their natural habitat.

Coppell Nature Park and the Biodiversity Education Center are situated at 367 Freeport Parkway on the west side of Coppell, Texas. They are part of Wagon Wheel Park, a 153-acre tract of land of which 66 acres are the natural wooded section of Coppell Nature Park. The Biodiversity Education Center is only open to the public during center program offerings. Further information about CNP and FCNP is available at
