When: Sunday, July 7th, 6:30pm-7:30pm

Where: The Dillon Amphitheater - 201 W. Lodgepole Street, Dillon

Join the Town of Dillon, Friends of the Dillon Ranger District and the Raptor Education Foundation for an evening of nature education at the Dillon Amphitheater. 

The Raptor Education Foundation’s Raptor Summit introduces the audience to a live eagle, hawk, falcon, and owl during a fifty-minute program that covers, biology, ecology, current status, along with the cultural history of raptors where pertinent to the particular species being presented.  Audience members will learn to discriminate between what makes a bird of prey a raptor, as well as the differences between the various species being discussed.   Remember, most birds of prey are not raptors!

During the program, the smaller birds will be moved through the audience with their handlers for close up views and photos. A short question session follows and visitors can move in for closer pictures near the stage with one or two of the raptors that will be on hand as the program finishes.

This event is FREE and open to the public. All ages welcome! No sign up is necessary.
