Falcons and Falconry - All Ages

Peregrin falcon

60 minutes

Humans and raptors have a connection that predates modern American history. Learn about the exciting sport of falconry and its impact on our world today. Join specialists from The Raptor Center as they entertain you with falconry stories from years past, current raptor training techniques, and critical conservation issues that face today's birds of prey. The 60-minute program includes live raptors traditionally used in the sport of falconry, such as the red-tailed hawk, peregrine falcon, golden eagle, and American kestrel, plus many hands-on props for students to touch, such as traditional falconry equipment, raptor feet, wings, feathers, and skulls for students to touch.

Program highlights

  • At least one raptor education specialist
  • At least three raptors such as an eagle, hawk, and falcon
  • Hands-on teaching tools such as feathers, wings, skulls, and feet
  • Interactive questions

Programs can be modified to meet specific learning objectives upon teacher request.

A group size of 45 or less provides the best educational experience. Larger groups can be accommodated with some program modifications.
