PEREGRINE FUND INC
November 8, 2012

For myself it took one visit to the World Center for Birds of Prey to realize I had to be a part of this wonderful organization in some way, so I volunteer as a tour guide at the center. For visitors who wish an entertaining and educational experience, this facility is first class. During your visit you will learn cool facts about birds of prey, you will learn about the sport of falconry and the Peregrine Fund's mission. Upon arrival most visitors do not realize we have over 200 birds of prey at the Center. Many do not know that one of the Peregrine Fund's important missions is the propagation of endangered birds of prey for release to the wild. Fun and educational experiences await visitors of all ages from children making birds of prey masks to seniors who grab the "Kodak Moment" to get photos of the grand kids dressed up like birds of prey. You will likely leave with a greater appreciation for these awesome raptors. I have heard more than one visitor walk away saying they had no idea this place had so much to offer. For us tour guides, that is our reward. Steve Lewis
