Birds of Prey

Come learn about the raptors that are the eye in the sky over Gresham with our birds of prey class. We will teach you how to properly identify native raptors as well as delve into their fascinating natural history and their amazing adaptations to catching prey. You can then employ the skills you learned at the 11th annual Raptor Road Trip on Sauvie Island on Saturday, Jan. 31.
