Education programs at Audubon Center for Birds of Prey offer a unique and interactive opportunity to learn about Florida’s raptors, conservation, and Florida natural history. Education and outreach programs are offered to diverse groups of all ages, including local schools, home school groups, civic groups, Girl and Boy Scout troops, garden clubs, veterinary caregivers and other private groups. All programs are science-based and are in compliance with the Florida Sunshine State standards. Each presentation is appropriately targeted for the age group scheduled.
With live bird ambassadors and hands-on activities, participants explore the relationship of people to their natural environment while discovering the role raptors play in our local ecosystems as well as how individuals can have a positive role in the environment. At the Center or at your location, you can experience the role raptors play in all of our lives.
For questions or to schedule any of the programs offered below, please contact Laura VonMutius, the Education Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 407-644-0190. Please note that as of July 2017, we have updated our Program Travel Policy. We are now unable to accomodate one-hour educational programs at a location that is more then an hours drive from the Center. Day ong events, like birding festivals and other special events, that exceed this parameter will be accepted on a case by case basis.
