Bring the Wild Into Your Classroom!
Learn about hawks, owls, eagles, falcons and vultures through a live bird of prey program. Our programs are science based and correlated to Colorado’s Model Content Standards for science and are designed to support your school’s STEM education goals. Choose between Birds of Prey, Owls of Colorado, or Bird of Prey Pellet Dissection Lab!
Birds of Prey
Learn about hawks, owls, eagles, falcons and vultures through a live bird of prey program. The naturalist will discuss bird of prey adaptations, predator/prey relationships, specific characteristics, natural history, personal stories of the birds presented, and our work to rehabilitate sick, injured and orphaned birds of prey. The hour long presentation includes at east two different birds of prey (hawk, owl, falcon or vulture). Add an eagle to the program for an additional fee.
Owls of Colorado
The diverse habitats of our state provide homes for several species of owls. Take a tour of Colorado habitats and meet the owls that call them home. The naturalist will discuss owl adaptations and characteristics, predator/prey relationships, natural history and personal stories of the owls presented. The hour long presentation includes at least two owl species.
Bird of Prey Pellet Dissection Lab
When birds of prey eat their dinner, they ingest every part of the animal. Many parts of the animal, such as bones and fur, cannot be digested and are regurgitated by the bird in the form of a dry pellet. Pellet dissection is a fun and interesting way to investigate predators and prey. Everything for the investigation is provided (pellets and equipment).
