Programs We Offer
RUC specializes in educating people about the amazing world of
birds of prey. We service schools, churches, Scouts, sport shows,
fairs, state & federal parks, festivals, birthday parties, camps,
outings, nature centers, museums, clubs, special interests
societies, and events.
A display, power point slide presentation, and the physical
handling of the different birds of prey are all utilized in the
program. A time of questions and answers is allowed at the close
of each assembly.
These programs are similar in format to an educational program
but primarily focuses on hunting and the ancient sport of falconry.
The topics of history, how to man, train & hunt with raptors are
all included in the program. Falconry is the oldest form of hunting
still in existence today.
Educational assemblies are limited to a group size of 150 or less at
a given demonstration. Multiple demonstrations can be arranged
in the same day as long as they are back to back. Programs
normally run between forty-five minutes to an hour. Set up time
is required, but does not usually take more than thirty minutes.
These tend to be a feature exhibit for fairs, festivals, hunting
shows, and special events. A display allows people to observe
birds of prey up close, presenting a great time for photography
and questions and answers about sound conservation.
These programs feature an actual flying demonstration. This
tethered or free-flight program presents an educational and
entertaining show of raptors in action. Birds are either flown
from a perch to a person, person to person, or from a perch to a
swung lure. Customized programs are also offered. Call or email
for more information.
