Rapid City volunteers look to expand bird rehab services

RAPID CITY (AP) -- Two volunteers who take care of birds out of their own homes are hoping to bring to life a Raptor Center campus to provide rehabilitation and education.

RAPID CITY (AP) - Two volunteers who take care of birds out of their own homes are hoping to bring to life a Raptor Center campus to provide rehabilitation and education.

The Rapid City Journal reports John Halverson and Maggie Engler have purchased about 13 acres outside of Rapid City to build the Black Hills Raptor Center.

Halverson and Engler's plans include creating a variety of buildings that would serve as a rehabilitation center for birds, and would offer educational classes.

The center's rehabilitation services will be available for birds in a four-state region, including western South Dakota, northwestern Nebraska, eastern Wyoming and western North Dakota.

Federal rules prevent Halverson and Engler from rehabilitating birds in their homes, so they only care for birds that can't return to the wild.
