Event Description

Please join us at the Biosphere Discovery Hub located in the Museum of Natural History’s Bird Hall for a very special visit from some parrot friends right here on the Pentacrest! The Iowa Parrot Rescue and a few of their parrots will fly over for a bird-filled morning.

A birdy meet-and-greet (real live parrots!) plus an opportunity to learn about the wonderful work the Iowa Parrot Rescue is doing - including conservation methods used to save the species and their habitats.

The UI Museum of Natural History's Cody Crawford will offer a peek at our special collection of birds who needed an organization like IPR on their side once upon a time. Cody will share some about just what it is we do with our massive bird collection at the museum, too.
