Raptors and Falconry

Date: July 20, 2019
Registration required. All ages.

Falconry is the ancient art and hunting sport of using trained birds of prey to hunt wild game. Falconry was introduced to the United States in 1622 by England, and though it has evolved over the years one thing remains the same: the bond between the falconer and their bird. Join Meagan Duffee-Yates, Master falconer, as she discusses the rich history of falconry. Discover what makes birds of prey such fascinating animals and see live birds of prey. She’ll discuss the steps involved in becoming a falconer and the importance of raptor conservation.

Held at Shoal Creek Conservation Education Center.
