What will we see?

Raptor Photo Day is a great opportunity to experience taking photographs of their education ambassadors in a natural setting. They set up perching throughout their park and let photographers take pictures of the birds with different backgrounds and lighting. I was told that photographers could possibly be as close as 5’ away from their subject. For all ages and photography experience.

Their special event name: Raptor Photo Day
