Whether you are looking for a fun and informative activity to round off a subject, or a more tailored educational experience, we can help! We offer a wide range of scientific topics and encourage an interest in nature, wildlife and conservation!
What to Expect
We can host your class at the farm's flying field, or let us bring the birds to you! Our subjects of discussion can be tailored to match your lesson plans and level of learning. We keep our session informative and fun to engage the students and further their interest in our environment and wildlife. Topics can include general information on birds of prey, how birds fly, their place in the food chain, and conservation and habitat protection. Alternatively, we can discuss our wildlife ambassadors and their local wild cousins.
Free flight displays are seasonally available at the farm's flying field.
For off-site programs, we will hold the birds and bring them around the room for the students to see our birds of prey up close and personal. Sessions booked from May to October may include flying depending on space safety, time of year and weather conditions.
With COVID-19 still in our community, we are offering virtual Zoom or Google Meet educational programs. We handle the birds before the camera so the students can see them, and strive to make the session as interactive as possible.
