There’s no better way to learn about the birds of prey in North Texas than to meet them in person!
Blackland Prairie Raptor Center’s birds of prey have many years of experience introducing children and adults to the world of raptors. These hawks, owls and falcons are well trained, and with the assistance of BPRC education specialists, show you what makes them an important part of our environment.
The presentations, approximately 45 minutes long are at your location, and are available to all schools, home school groups, youth organizations, libraries, scouts and much more. In 2013 we presented to more than 30,000 people.
We travel all over North Texas!
We also offer on-site programming. We have a park with pavilions, an amphitheater, restrooms, and trails. We can offer raptor presentations as well as guided hikes through native Blackland Prairie. Able to accommodate up to 300 for our on-site programs.
Outreach group size can range from just a few, to a classroom to over 1,000 (for events). For schools we recommend no more than 150 at a time and can do as many back-to-back programs as requested.
Our programs include:
