Raptor Fair

Kick off Fourth of July at ACES fifth annual Raptor Fair, a free community event for all ages! This year, the event features new visiting birds, including a first-ever Bald Eagle, a Long-eared Owl, Barn Owl, Peregrine Falcon, and Harris Hawk. The event also showcases ACES resident Red-tailed Hawk, Golden Eagle, and Great-horned Owl. Learn about these creatures from ACES Naturalist Staff as well as visiting experts from Hawk Quest, an education organization from Denver.

The Raptor Fair will include visiting opportunities with the birds, an owl pellet dissection station, a raptor-themed photo booth and a formal presentation from 4:30 - 5PM with HawkQuest, and other activities around the Hallam Lake Nature Preserve.

Over the years ACES has been home to several non-releasable raptors who become some of our best educators. The fifth annual Raptor Fair celebrates these incredible birds!
