Falconry and Raptors
The summer camp in which TRC partners with Richardson Nature Center talked about how care and management of raptors today owes much to the sport of falconry. Even though turkey vultures are not used for hunting in falconry, TRC uses equipment and training for Nero, just like other education raptors. Bracelets, jesses and gloves are all equipment we use.
Our very own Lori Arent, Clinic Manager, was a guest speaker! She used a scavenger hunt as a way for the campers to learn about equipment she uses as a falconer.
