Age K+ to adult
This program will introduce participants to falconry, its history, and its significance in the past and present. It will also touch on the biology and natural history of our native raptor species. Participants will be introduced to various birds of prey species. Additional time will be allotted for a Q&A session and a photo opportunity with the birds at the end of the program.
