The Raptor Center staff member with education bird Lois60-minute minimum, 4-hour maximum

This informal educational experience is ideal for any event where individuals will be walking around and learning at their own pace. This program includes a minimum of three live raptors perched out on display with two highly trained educators. Participants can ask questions, take photos, or just relax and watch the raptors. This style of program provides opportunities for one-on-one learning with our raptor specialists. Having live raptors perched out at your next event is sure to inspire. Consider this program for field days, parents' weekends, career days, corporate picnics, employee appreciation days, bring-your-child-to-work days, fairs, festivals, church picnics, or any other event you want people to remember.
