Education Programs

Let us bring our birds to you! Our mission is to provide powerful connections with birds, their stories and humans. We have witnessed firsthand how this can have a lasting impact on people of all ages and backgrounds. Our birds are worked with using the most progressive, scientific methods of choice based protocols, ensuring a meaningful, engaging program that highlights adaptations, conservation, and connection to the earth’s incredible biomes.
Our programs can be customized to the age group of your choice, and unless requested or noted otherwise, involve three to four birds each. We bring our own equipment, and programs can be indoors or outdoors. Our birds have performed in large events, school graduations, festivals, to private gatherings, corporate events, museums, and school classrooms.
We travel throughout San Diego county and to surrounding areas with our wildlife conservation education programs.

Radical Raptors

This program explores the different types of raptors, or birds of prey, from owls to falcons to hawks. We show off the different adaptations that makes each raptor unique, how they hunt, fly, see, and experience the world differently, and even listen to a few sounds of raptor species.

Birds in Your Backyard

The first wild animal we usually experience in our day is likely a bird, from a songbird calling or a foraging in our urban spaces. Southern California, and San Diego county, is known as a biodiversity hotspot, and we are lucky to come across a wider variety of animals and plants than almost anywhere else in North America. This makes us extremely lucky to have such a wide variety of birds, but we may not aware. From ravens to falcons, migratory bird species and vultures, our beautiful Southern California has many habitats for special birds.
