Event description

Description

Experience a one hour encounter with some of nature's most amazing predators. The Raptor Encounter Course will allow participants to get close and personal with several different birds of prey, including an owl, a hawk and a falcon!

Hold a hawk or an owl on your glove as you learn about how we work with them and why they are so important in our ecosystems. Witness the speed and agility of the falcons as it dives above you and be thrilled when you release the hawk and it returns to your gloved arm. It's an experience you'll never forget!

Looking to do it all? Book a combination ticket for an Encounter Course and Flight Demonstaration for only $70 *Fees and taxes not included

*PLEASE NOTE Flight Demonstrations are 11:30am daily and 5:30pm Friday and Saturday, so if you are attending a later afternoon Encounter Course you may be required to come back to Allan Brooks Nature Centre later that day.

For ages 8 and up.


Please Note

We hold our Raptor programs at our outdoor theatre rain or shine, but thunder and strong winds threaten safety of the birds and will cause us to cancel. PLEASE REMEMBER to bring hats and sunscreen as there is NO covered area over the open grassland theatre. Paid tickets will be rescheduled to a later date if cancelled due to weather.

We do not allow observers at our Encounter Courses as it's not fair to registrants who paid for the experience to work with the birds. Please ensure everyone in your party has purchased a ticket. Our handlers will be happy to take photos of your friend or family member on their phone or camera in your absence.

Minimum age for this course is 8 due to safety of the large birds and registrants.

Refunds can be issued if we are notified within 48 hours by phone [250-260-4227] or email [communications@abnc.ca] of the cancellation.
