A high quality education program for students and adults alike is an essential component of The Peregrine Fund’s work with birds of prey. Education dispels fears and misunderstandings and fosters a favorable climate for conservation. We offer many ways to enjoy and engage with birds of prey, either by visiting the Velma Morrison Visitor Center at our World Center for Birds of Prey in Boise, Idaho, or by enjoying lessons and activities on the website.
Arrange tours of 15 or more people in advance so we can plan activities at the interpretive center that fit the needs of your school, club, organization or other group.
Throughout the day, interpretive center visitors can meet our avian ambassadors face to face and hear raptor experts talk about the world of birds of prey.
The books, art, sculpture, and artifacts of falconry, an ancient sport practiced around the world, are on display at the Archives of Falconry.
Experience a rare opportunity to learn the techniques our experts use to keep the education birds healthy and happy and observe staff interacting with the birds in their chambers.
This online reference is a great way to learn basic characteristics and behaviors of dozens of birds of prey around the world.
Biologists and students write frequently from often rugged and remote locations to describe their first-hand experiences, hard work, challenges, and adventures.
Keep up with news, events, and activities at the interpretive center with this quarterly enewsletter.
