Take Flight this October at The Peregrine Fund’s World Center for Birds of Prey Annual Fall Flights

1 October 2015

The air is getting cooler and crisper which means it’s time for Fall Flights presented by The Peregrine Fund’s World Center for Birds of Prey and annually sponsored by Larry Miller Subaru. Every weekend this October, see our education birds fly outdoors, where they swoop and soar over the heads of delighted audiences to show off their amazing aerial skills. This is your best opportunity to get up-close to a hawk, falcon, or owl as they glide sometimes only inches over your head!

Our raptor trainers and education staff will showcase the natural flight behavior of birds of prey using traditional falconry techniques. Each 45 minute demonstration is narrated to help you learn about the exciting lives of these sky hunters! Children love the high-energy activity of the speeding falcons. Photographers will enjoy the opportunity to photograph the raptors as they fly within close proximity. Bird watchers will marvel to see some of the less common species such as the Aplomado Falcon.

Whatever your reason, make sure you mark your calendar today so you don’t miss out on the fall family tradition!

When: Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from October 2 to October 31 (weather permitting.)

Please arrive by 2:30 pm. There will be limited late seating after the program begins at 3 pm.

The visitor center is open 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday-Sunday.
