Hunters of the Sky
June 23, 2007 - December 30, 2007

Children of all ages enjoyed this hands-on national traveling exhibit about raptors-the great birds of prey.

For thousands of years, raptors have gripped the human imagination, being revered as divine messengers, prized as hunting companions, and celebrated as symbols of power. Visitors explored the biology and ecology of raptors-eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, and the reclusive condor-diverse and complex birds of prey whose survival is fundamentally linked to humans.


     

In addition to life-size dioramas that illustrate the majesty of raptors in their natural habitats, Hunters of the Sky offered many interactive components to engross both children and adults and periodic showings of live birds of prey enhanced the exhibit.
