Join us for the 4th Annual Falconry: On the Hunt. MMA is once again partnering with Nantucket Hawking and Falconry for an afternoon all about raptors. This program will begin at the Maria Mitchell Association’s Natural Science Museum for an indoor presentation by Kim Botelho on Nantucket’s birds of prey. Afterwards, we will head out to meet Licensed Master Falconer, Tom Mulholland in the field. You will have the opportunity to see hawks and falcons from MMA’s collections, get up-close to a live red-tailed hawk, hear about Tom’s experiences working with raptors, and then observe the hunt first hand.

Appropriate for ages 8 and up. Children must be accompanied by an adult and all participants must register. MMA can provide transportation to the field location for first 10 people that request it. Others are welcome to follow us there. A max of 20 participants will be allowed.

Cost
$40.00 per Participant
