Educational Events

Auburn University's Southeastern Raptor Center takes its educational program on the road to teach about birds of prey. You can see these birds, known as raptors, up close while learning about habitats, conservation and ecology. The center travels all over Alabama and to other Southeastern states and  presents its birds to approximately 30,000 people per year.

The Education Unit staff usually takes seven birds of prey, which can include a variety of hawks, eagles, falcons and owls to educational events. Attendees see birds up close and receive a customized lesson to suit the group’s curriculum needs. Attendees do not handle or touch the birds.

What We Do

The Education Unit of SRC will tailor presentations to meet your group’s objectives and curriculum. If you have a special interest or needs, let us know. Our goal is to provide an informative, personalized presentation.

We also encourage everyone to use the center as an educational resource. If your child is working on a report and needs information or photos, give us a call. We will be glad to help.

The Southeastern Raptor Center is a non-profit organization and we do charge a fee to cover expenses and to aid in our education and conservation efforts. For more information or to arrange a program, call (334) 844-6943 or email us at
