Join POST and Santa Clara County Parks for an educational experience like no other: Raptor Fest! This incredible event will highlight very important species of raptors who play an integral role in the health of our ecosystems! This free educational event will feature presentations and a chance to visit local wildlife and conservation nonprofits or groups who work to protect vital species in the Bay Area. The event will be hosted at Rancho San Vicente, a newer addition to Calero County Park that was protected by POST and is rapidly becoming a destination to view a variety of raptors. This is a unique opportunity to see and learn about birds of prey and the importance of conservation in our communities. Presentations will include Master Falconer Kenny Elvin of Full Circle Falconry. Kenny Elvin will be providing a 45-minute falconry presentation several times during the event. Kenny will share about the history of falconry as well as the biology and habits of raptors. The presentation may involve a flight demonstration, depending on conditions. A representative of Santa Clara County Parks will open the falconry presentation by sharing their efforts to protect raptors throughout the park system. The event will also include a display of rescued Raptors by Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center (WERC).
