Birds of Prey Program

 

All the birds of prey used in our education program have sustained injuries that make them un-releasable. They have been carefully trained as education birds, to teach kids and adults alike about their unique abilities and importance in the wild. It is our privilege to both work with these beautiful and amazing birds as well as teach others about them!  

 

Our presentations are approximately one hour long and are narrated by our education director, Kathy Wheeler. Other Birds Of Prey team members assist her with the birds and take them around the room so that everybody gets a chance to see them!  The presentations are interactive --- questions are strongly encouraged!

 

Our programs contain anywhere from one to four education birds including; owls, a kestral, a turkey vulture and hawks.

 

The fee ranges from $100 - $250 depending upon number of education birds requested, length of program and travel distance.

            

Has your class or group been studying a specific feature of raptors such as vision, hunting skills or habitat?  Let us know!  We are happy to customize our program to meet your needs by focusing our presentation on your particular area of interest.
