About this image

Cherish sunsets, wild creatures and wild places. Have a love affair with the wonder and beauty of the earth. --Stewart Udall

Is your child interested in becoming a junior keeper for a week? This camp gives campers the opportunity to work with our Resident Bird Care staff and learn what it takes to care for and train over 35 different species of raptors. Campers will get nose to beak with the birds, help feed them, and also train some of our resident raptors!

SESSION 7: Onsite Keeper Camp: Level 1, July 26-30 (rising 3rd and 4th graders)
