and The Lamar Q Ball, Jr. Raptor Center

Outreach

Add something WILD to your next event!

The Wildlife Center offers lively and fascinating programs that include a selection of birds of prey, reptiles, amphibians and fun creepy crawlers! Classroom, assembly and festival booth programs are available, tailored to the age and interests of the audience.   Also, Wildlife Center outreach programs add a unique and memorable component to professional conferences and corporate meetings.

Highly evolved predator/prey relations, raptors as environmental indicators, venomous vs. non-venomous snakes, and tremendous adaptations in the animal kingdom are presented while hawks and owls fly over your heads and snakes make their way into your arms, if not your hearts! There is always considerable audience participation as we offer opportunities to get up close and personal with eagles, pythons, giant owls, falcons, huge cockroaches, lizards, and a team of other engaging wildlife.

Flight show programs can be presented in auditoriums, theaters, ballrooms, restaurants, at stadiums and on golf courses. These programs make great ice breakers for social gatherings, business meetings and fund raising events.
