Red-tailed hawks have keen eyes, curious minds, and can soar long distances. Our Red-tailed Hawk Homeschool Class is the name for our homeschool class for 6 to 8 year olds. This series introduces homeschool students to basic ecology while nurturing an appreciation for and understanding of the natural world.

This season we will be investigating the incredible diversity of life at the sanctuary. Each day will focus on a different group of living things (birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, plants, and more). We will explore the sanctuary, carefully catch and observe live creatures, and make time each day for questions, creativity, and nature play. All of our homeschool groups are learning about the same topics this fall, but with the content and activities tailored to the ages, interests, and needs of the group.

Instructions and Directions:

Drop off/pick is outside in front of the sanctuary buildings. Please come dressed for the weather as we will be outside for the entire class. For the Red-tailed Hawks and Great Blue Herons, this is a drop-off class and we cannot accommodate parents/guardians coming along for the class.
All participants must wear a mask and complete a Covid-19 self-health assessment check form prior to each class. More information including a full Covid-19 safety protocol will be provided.

Registration is required.
For your own security, DO NOT send credit card information via email.
