Each year, thousands of students are engaged in the Center’s science and natural history based educational programs. The power and beauty of birds of prey cast them as unparalleled ambassadors in public education – exemplifying both the intellectual and ethical aspects of conservation management.

Decades of program experience and evaluations consistently provided from educators demonstrate that these programs capture attention, enhance retention of subject material, and foster a renewed enthusiasm for learning – all of which contribute to an overall improvement in academic performance. The experiential programs offered by the Center, whether on-site at the Center’s 152 acre campus, or offered as outreach in classrooms and other venues, promote an awareness and appreciation for the natural world and our respective roles as stewards in its preservation.
