Masters of the Skies: A Brief Introduction to Falconry (Nov. 19)

Saturday, November 19 - 2:00 pmFrom $10.00
This program will introduce participants to falconry, its history and its significance in the past and present. It will also touch on the biology and natural history of our native raptor species. Participants will be introduced to two of Pennsylvania’s native birds of prey (a red-tailed hawk and a red-shouldered hawk) as well as a Harris’s hawk, which is native to the Southwestern U.S. Additional time will be allotted for a Q&A session and a photo opportunity with the birds at the end of the program. Please note, this is a bring-your-own seat event, be it a blanket or a lawn chair. Please note that individual tickets are per person and that all children must be accompanied by an adult. French native Gregory Wojtera is a master falconer who has worked with almost 50 raptors in the past 12 years. He trains and flies hawks, falcons and owls for a variety of purposes, including hunting, falconry abatement (bird control) and education. In 2014, he created Masters of the Skies to educate the general public about birds of prey and falconry. Wojtera is licensed at the state and federal levels to conduct public falconry classes, and he has been working as a full-time falconer and educator since 2016.
