Why Birds of Prey?
- Natural History
- Math & Physics
- Art & Photography
Our programs include:
- Introduction to Floridas's native birds of prey species as well as several migratory species and their specializations.
- Up close observation of live birds of prey and, at our center, the chance to see our birds free fly.
- Discussions about habitat, diet, history, and conservation issues.
Private Events & Bird-Day PartiesARC offers wildlife programs to schools, scout troops, church groups, civic organizations, retirement centers and other non-profits. They are great for after school programs or Kids Camps. Kids crafts and art projects can be included to further enhance the learning experience.
We are also available for booking for private parties - We can bring birds of your choice, which you can have your photo taken with, and hear a bit of education about these wonderful birds. Or, you can choose to have your party at ARC with our birds in attendance! We love to host birthday (bird-day!) parties at our center.
We have had many wonderful groups of photographers visit, and we are always happy to accommodate photo clubs. We have a variety of perches, and you can observe our birds outdoors or inside. For more information, please visit our Photography Programs page.
