Schedule an April or May Field Trip to the World Center for Birds of Prey!

Interpretive Center Staff — in World Center for Birds of Prey

Do you remember the first time you came to visit the World Center for Birds of Prey? For many Idaho residents, it was during a school field trip. Every year, we get to teach thousands of students about birds of prey here at our facility—at no charge to students or teachers. Not only do the kids get to meet our many education birds in person; they also get to learn about the adaptations and habitats of these fascinating creatures during a hands-on, interactive tour.

Dollars for DAKA! Matching Funds

Interpretive Center Staff — in World Center for Birds of Prey

During the month of August at The World Center for Birds of Prey, every dollar Daka, our crow collects will be matched by the good folks at Layne Laboratories. Layne Labs produces some of the food our birds of prey need to keep them healthy; rats and mice. This month, every time Daka flies into the audience to accept monetary donations, he is doing double duty, as Layne Labs has offered to match us dollar for dollar. We have 27 birds of prey who need quality food to keep them healthy. With our guests' help and matching funds from Layne Labs, we will hopefully make a sizeable "dent" in our feeding bills for our avian ambassadors. During Daka's presentations, give generously; and  MANY thanks to all those who have already given "dollars to Daka".
