Residents and visitors come and watch a trained hawk swoop past you and get up close to a falcon, owl, and the majestic bead eagle as you hear about the fascinating lives of these native birds of prey.
“Birds of prey are absolutely beautiful animals,” says Kin Quitagua, director of Hawkquest of their non-releasable birds. “We use our birds as a tool to help people understand and connect with nature in Colorado.”
To reserve your seat, pre-registration is highly recommended before the day of the event. Participants should bring a blanket or low lawn chairs to sit on, a camera, and clothes for being outdoors at sunset. If it is raining at the program start time, there will be a 30 minute delay and the event will be moved inside the South Platte Park classroom.
HawkQuest‘s goal is to make education both meaningful and fun, while creating an atmosphere which fosters respect for our land and the stewardship of all living things. Our message concerning the importance of biodiversity, of the finality of extinction, and of man’s need to nurture his world is interwoven with discussions of the raptors’ place in our ecosystem.
