Thank you for a very successful 2013 Duke Lecture. Dr. Thor Hanson was our speaker. He is the author of Feathers: The Evolution of a Natural Miracle, among several other publications.
Look for information on our 2014 Duke Lecture. Dr. Patrick Redig, TRC's co-founder and Director Emeritus, will be our speaker.
This event is free and open to the public. It is intended for those with a general to intermediate knowledge of birds. RSVP's are required, and this event does fill quickly!

The Duke Lecture Series began in 2006 by Dr. William H. and Mary E. Holleman, lifelong friends of Dr. Gary Duke, co-founder of The Raptor Center. The Hollemans’ gift to establish a lectureship endowment fund pays tribute to Dr. Duke’s work and legacy at the University of Minnesota and The Raptor Center. An annual lecture hosted by The Raptor Center features speakers on the topic of avian medicine, avian conservation, and other pertinent avian topics.
