Join naturalists from the World Bird Sanctuary for a 25-minute special flying demonstration featuring some of the most talented "athletes" of the animal kingdom.
After an introduction to falconry training equipment and techniques, visitors will witness some of the World Bird Sanctuary's resident falcons perform amazing natural behaviors and learn about their personal stories. You'll also hear about some of the dangers facing wild falcon populations, and get an up-close look at a range of falcon types and the unique physical features that enable these birds to perform such incredible aerial maneuvers.
Fantastic Flying Falcons demonstrations are held on Saturdays at 4 p.m. and Sundays at noon from May through August at Buder Park in Fenton. Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Discounts for groups of 10 or more.
