BIRDS OF PREY 2020 SEASON
Every year during March and April, EarthQuest brings the Birds of Prey program to Brazoria County for Migration Celebration. During the weeks preceding Migration Celebration, EarthQuest's wildlife handlers present programs in more than 40 schools in the Alvin, Angleton, Bay City, Brazosport, Columbia-Brazoria, Damon, Danbury, Sweeny, and Van Vleck School Districts, reaching a total audience of over 15,000 students and teachers.
During the same period, EarthQuest also presents public Birds of Prey programs in a variety of venues including state, county, and municipal parks,
service clubs, churches, and shopping malls. These programs culminate at Migration Celebration in April with four programs during the two-day festival at
San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge.
Public Birds of Prey programs are funded by donors. Unless otherwise noted, public programs are open to the public without charge.
Due to Covid 19, most school programs were not scheduled in 2021
