4 March 2014

BOISE, Idaho – The Peregrine Fund’s World Center for Birds of Prey is reserving two special days with reduced admission prices for homeschooled students ‒ Wednesday, March 12, and Tuesday, April 29 ‒ to learn about conserving birds of prey.

The educational focus will be on what birds of prey need to survive.
