Bring your family to see live owls, hawks and hawks from around the world up close, with master falconer Brian Bradley. Find out how these magnificent birds play an important role at the top of the food chain in our environment.
Learn about their amazing adaptations for survival in the wild and learn about the ancient sport of falconry. You will see some of these athletes trained in flight, so join us for an informative, entertaining and action-oriented program for adults and children (ages 3 and up).
The event will take place on Sunday, October 3 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the DCA’s expansive lawn, so bring a blanket. And plan to continue your afternoon enjoying the (perfect kid-friendly) features of our adjacent four-acre DCA Bird Sanctuary and Nature Trail.
Brian Bradley has been an animal trainer for over 20 years. His passion for the outdoors and birds of prey began at the age of 14, when he became an apprentice falconer. The love of raptors and the desire to educate others about these magnificent creatures led to the creation of his Skyhunters in Flight program.
