Raptors of the Desert Sky
Be awed by the beauty and power of free-flying raptors during our outdoor program. Learn all about birds of prey as they soar close enough to raise the hair on your head.
It’s a 15-minute walk from Admissions to the trail entrance just north of the 1904 High Desert Ranch and Sawmill. The trail to the flight area may be difficult for strollers and wheelchairs. Weather permitting.
A Museum staff member will meet the group at this trail entrance, collect tickets and explain about the flight show. It’s another 400 yards to the clearing where the flight program takes place; seating is limited. The gate closes at 11:15 am and there is no late entry to ensure the welfare of the birds.
Tickets cannot be reserved in advance and are only available at the Museum on a first come, first served basis.
Although tickets must be purchased no later than 11:00 am, they often sell out before 10:00 am.
Members, Children (12 & Under), Seniors (65+) – $5 plus admission
Non-member adults (13-64) – $7 plus admission
Children ages 2 and younger are free
