Past Educational Programs

To keep our organization fresh and exciting, we retire certain programs each year in order to make room for new ones. Here are some of our educational programs that we no longer actively maintain. However, if something here catches your eye, please contact us and we will do our best to prepare a program that is just right for you.

Goddard School
Friends of a Feather
Pre-K and K
30 minutes

A raptor puppet will help to read a children's story about birds of prey. After the story and the precursor (puppet) to the real deal, one of our ambassadors will come out. We will talk about birds of prey in general and what makes them special. The puppet will make the transition to seeing the real bird smoother. We want younger children to respect and understand these predators without fearing them.
