Falconry program at Houston Nature Center (08/08/2012)
Saturday, August 18 at 7:00 PM

Falconry . . . the taking of wild quarry with a trained raptor. That is the definition of the Sport of Kings, but you don’t have to be a king to practice it. Have you ever been curious about falconry? Do you enjoy watching raptors such as hawks, falcons and eagles? Do you like getting out into wild places? If you’ve said “yes” to any of these questions you’ll enjoy meeting Carolyn Standlee-Hanson and her two hunting hawks. Carolyn is a Master falconer who pursues rabbits and squirrels (in the winter months) with her trained Red-tailed Hawk, Hit Girl, and Harris’s Hawk, Sassy. She will explain the sport of falconry in America, demonstrate the equipment used to manage the birds, and answer your questions.

Carolyn will not be hunting with the birds during this program since they are finishing their molts and hunting season hasn’t opened yet. Interested individuals may be invited to go hunting with Carolyn and her birds at a later date.

This program is open to the public and donations are appreciated. The Houston Nature Center is located one block north of the intersection of Highways 16 and 76 in Trailhead Park in Houston. For more information contact the Center at 507-896-4668 or nature@acegroup.cc.
