We are licensed by the US Fish & Wildlife Service to possess several non-releasable birds to use in educational presentations. These non-releasable birds and our educators travel to schools, libraries, scout camps, and elsewhere to teach audiences about the importance of birds and the ecosystems we share.  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 birds, please contact us!
