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. On March 12, experts will discuss adaptions, such talons, beaks, and other physical traits, that enable birds of prey to hunt and defend their territories. On April 29, students will learn about the kinds of habitat raptors need to find food and raise families.
