ACCA education volunteers travel with our non-releasable raptors to schools, libraries, scout camps, and elsewhere to teach audiences about the importance of birds and the ecosystems we share. They also develop outreach and public education projects as well as animal husbandry and training protocols. They work closely with development volunteers to plan and organize outreach events; develop brochures and other literature; and maintain our online presence. We have big plans for our education department — check back here often for updates. If you are interested in scheduling a presentation featuring live birds, please contact us!
Our education volunteers are active members of several professional organizations, including the International Association of Avian Trainers and Educators, and the Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment. For more information about ACCA volunteers, visit Our Team.
