July Movie of the Month
Stop by the Visitor Center during regular hours to see our new movie of the month. Humans have had a unique relationship with raptors, nature’s aerial killing machines, for more than four thousand years, first through the ancient sport of falconry, and, more recently, as scientists and engineers have turned to these mighty birds as the inspiration for the latest in aircraft design. Learn the secrets of these astonishing aerialists and how they’ve mastered the art of soaring. (Runtime: 55 minutes).
