Raptor Experience-Cody (Grades K-12)
Join the 'Raptor Wrangler' and live birds to learn about some of the most common birds of prey in this region. Girls will have the chance to get up close to the birds as well as participate in hands on activities, dissecting owl pellets and creating habitat webs. You won't need binoculars for this bird excursion! With live birds right in front of them, you will learn the answers to questions like: Why does a falcon need to fly fast? What is the purpose of the featherless head on a vulture? Can a red-tail hawk kill a rattlesnake? Why are owls the same color as tree bark?
Girls will see Raptors native to the Yellowstone Valley and one Great Horned Owl who will be showing off their many colors and unique beaks. Learn all about the phenomenal birds of prey such as hawks and falcons. A trained expert will teach you how to distinguish the birds from one another as well as get an inside look at habitats and what birds of prey eat.
This program will focus on ecology of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and the important role birds of prey play in the environment.
The girls will be able to go through the museum for free before or after the program. Sign up today for a fun afternoon at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody!
This event is open to girls in grades K-12 and supervising adults.
