Science Spark: The Bird Rescue Center of Sonoma County

  • CMOSC 1835 West Steele Lane Santa Rosa United States (map)

Hawks and Owls and Ravens, oh my! Volunteer raptor handlers from BRC will bring two of our non-releasable bird of prey for an age-appropriate presentation on birds, how important they are to our ecosystem, and what we can all do to help them. We can bring some different feathers that the kids can see and touch, which will help them understand why owls can fly so silently.

The Bird Rescue Center takes in around 3,000 native wild birds each year—from baby hummingbirds to golden eagles—and educates thousands of local kids and adults on the essential role birds play in our environment.
