Raptor Education Course
The 2021 version of the Raptor Education Course will consist of 5 online classes to be presented via Zoom. Topics to be covered will include BBRR history, hawk watching, raptor identification and natural history, raptor banding, and owl migration. A few classes will incorporate our education raptors as well. The course will also include field trips! There will be one virtual field trip planned about raptor banding, and two small group in-person field trips to different parts of Braddock Bay focusing on the owl migration and the hawkwatch.
This course is suitable for adults, but even teens with a great interest are encouraged to attend. Space is limited so register early to ensure your spot. The registration fee is $40 for non-members, or $25 for BBRR members and current volunteers. This fee covers all classes and field trips, and any materials distributed. Those individuals successfully completing all class requirements will be recognized as official BBRR Educators.
Evening Zoom classes will be held from 7:00 PM to 9:00PM on the following dates:
- February 11
- February 25
- March 11
- March 25
- April 8
Field trips will take place in March and April, and will be scheduled once the course begins in February. Field trips will be scheduled based on the number of participants and their availability.
