Raptor Identification

Join Nature’s Educators for an information-packed presentation on learning to identify raptors of Colorado!  Not only will you view a professionally done slide show, you’ll also have the chance to meet live raptors up close and personal!  After the presentation (2 hours) we’ll take a hike through the park to see if we can find (and identify) any local raptors.  Be sure to bring your camera and inquiring minds!  Recommended for ages 12 and up!

This program has both an indoor portion and an outdoor hike portion. The hike will be between 1 and 2 miles long. Please dress appropriately for the weather!
