Informative and entertaining programs on a variety of raptor subjects are available to schools, clubs, scouts and other interested groups. Programs can be geared to third grade through college level as well as adult groups. Each program includes a color slide presentation and live birds of prey and is given by an experienced speaker from The Raptor Trust. We offer outreach programs where an educator from The Raptor Trust will come to your school/organization. You may also arrange to have a program at our education center.
