*ORC cannot travel over 1 hour from our center in Ojai.

Our Wildlife Education Program lasts 40 minutes to an hour, and typically consists of 4-7 ambassadors including a mix of hawks, owls, and falcons. Some of the topics discussed in our presentations are food chains, predator/prey dynamics, symbiotic relationships in wildlife, flight function and form, basic physiology, adaptations and evolutionary patterns, just to name a few.  We also bring age-appropriate handout materials and biofacts (wings, talons, feathers, pellets) for a tactile learning experience.  

These programs enrich any classroom and engage audiences of all ages.  Most people will never have the opportunity to observe these powerful creatures up-close, and even the most knowledgeable birders always walk away from one of our programs having learned something new and exciting about raptors or wildlife.  

We occasionally receive grant funding to provide free shows to Title I schools in Ventura County. If you are inquiring about a show for a Title I school, please let us know...
