November 14, 2023 — March 31st, 2024

Join us for another season of our outdoor Avian Adventures program! Your adventure begins as you have the exclusive opportunity to meet a special Sonoran Desert bird of prey! While viewing this beauty, a Raptor Free Flight trainer will share with you the importance of raptors and what you can do to help protect them wherever you live. Then - it’s your turn! After a quick glove training, you will watch the majestic Eurasian Eagle Owl fly to your very own glove and experience what it is like to hold a four pound owl! Don’t forget your camera in order to take a snapshot of this special memory! The best part (besides the birds)? You will be able to interact and ask questions with our Raptor Free Flight trainers in an intimate setting! Your purchase helps support the Museum’s operations and important conservation efforts.
