Come join us on the great lawn for our first ever "Birds of
Prey" demonstration. Students will get to see a falcon in flight as
it climbs then folds its wings to dive at speeds over 150 miles per
hour then brake at the last moment to perch upon its "prey". They
will experience the effortless soaring of a hawk as it flies over
them at trainer Steve Hoddy's command. They will strain to
hear the quiet rustle of the owl's feathers as it glides to perch
on its trainer's hand. During all of this Steve, the Master
Falconer and environmentalist provides information on the birds,
their environment and how we can responsibly interact with nature.
Please remember to bring your storm card.
