Bring the Birds of Prey
to Your School or Organization !

Our most popular program is "Wings of Wonder - West Virginia Birds of Prey", which runs 45 minutes to an hour  during which each bird is presented, on the glove, one at at time (pictured to the right and below). Each bird's case history is explained, followed by questions from the audience. This allows us to tailor the content and present according to the age and educational level to which we are presenting.

The 6 birds we bring represent the Hawks, Eagles, Falcons, and Owls. The case histories of each of these non-releasable birds act as a platform to discuss not just the reason they can not be returned to the wild, but also some possible ways people can help wild birds avoid the problems they face as they adapt to the changing world around them.

We can also present a "static" display (pictured above) in which we have handlers  with perched birds and  informational materials ready to engage participants as they  come to  our display. This format is good for gatherings where participants move from booth to booth, such as at a festival.
