ACCA education volunteers travel with our non-releasable birds to schools, libraries, scout camps, and elsewhere to teach audiences about the importance of birds and the ecosystems we share. All of our education birds were originally admitted to the ACCA for rehabilitation but their injuries prevented them from being released back to the wild. We train our birds using positive reinforcement as recommended by the International Association of Avian Trainers and Educators, which results in confident, comfortable birds. If you are interested in scheduling a presentation featuring live raptors, please contact us!

“Luna” the Barn Owl
“Canaan” the Red-tailed Hawk
