HWI provides a variety of public programs with our Raptor Ambassadors to give people the chance to experience these magnificent creatures up close. Our education programs teach about conservation and work to build appreciation for the natural world.

Let us customize a program for you! We cover a wide range or raptor related topics that can be tailored to specific needs or interests. Whether a scout group, corporate function, special event or birthday, we can customize a program just right for you. Below are samples of our most common programs.


Western Raptors

Western Raptors is a 45 minute program that introduces you to the common raptors seen througout the west in various seasons. Adults and children of all ages will enjoy learning tips on how to identify raptors in the wild, and about the specific attributes that make each raptor species unique and fascinating. Discussion items include how to spot raptors from all angles, population trends, and why raptors choose certain areas for nesting, wintering, and migration routes. All of our programs address raptor threats and the conservation challenges of declining habitat, hazards of toxic chemicals, and the role humans have played in both endangering and protecting these majestic creatures.
