A Day of Fun, Flight and Falconry!

Save the Date for Birds of Prey Day 2020!

Celebrating 28 years of Green Chimneys’ famous annual tradition dedicated to children, the environment and magnificent birds of prey.
  • Over 100 raptors
  • Free-flying demos
  • Top wildlife experts
  • Live animal presentations

Green Chimneys’ renowned Farm & Wildlife Center is home to nearly 200 animals, including 50 birds of prey. An Andean condor; Griffon vulture; numerous hawks, falcons, owls and several crows are under the care of expert wildlife staff. Spring always brings large numbers of fledgling birds that need care, and the goal is to return them to the wild as soon as possible.
The students of the Green Chimneys School have some special needs of their own and through the rehabilitation and care of these animals, they learn compassion, encouragement, and the true meaning of stewardship.
