Black Hills Raptor Center Buys Land!
The Black Hills Raptor Center buys land near Rapid City, SD! On April 14, 2017 an event six years in the making came to be. The BHRC bought its own land!
Like any good adventure tale, this journey for the Center has had many twists and turns.
Everyone involved has had many emotional ups and downs.
But in the end, the smiles were huge, and the handshakes and hugs were warm.
Leon and Cheryl Fenhaus sold the Black Hills Raptor Center 5 acres of land to the east of the city of Rapid City. Fronting Highway 44, and almost to the hamlet of Caputa, the land is a perfect location for helping the sick and injured birds of prey from this region.
This will also be the permanent home to the avian ambassadors that present programs and educate members of the community about the role of raptors in the natural world.
As so often happens, we get an opportunity to slip in a little bit of education about raptors in our business conversations. The person handling the closing transactions had an injured bird story of her own, and we could do a bit of explaining and pass along some deeper understanding of her experience.
