Earth Day Family Program: A Visit from a Peregrine Falcon
Join us for an Earth Day celebration and meet one of nature’s most incredible birds – the Peregrine Falcon.
Jackie Fallon, wildlife biologist, master falconer, and educator for over 30 years, will bring a live peregrine to Quarry Hill to help us learn why this raptor represents power, independence, and strength. See up close this raptor’s striking physical markings, hear about their record breaking speed, and develop an admiration for their dedication as parents!
This program will include activity tables for families to learn more about the birds we call raptors: falcons, hawks, and owls. Practice identifying raptors by shape and flight, examine contents of owl pellets to determine what was for dinner, take a visit to Quarry Hill’s Exploration Hall to see additional raptors, and go home with activity guides. Registration is required - space is limited to 40. (Recommended for ages 5+)
