Displays for schools

Narmbool class

We offer a range of educational programs to school groups.  Currently, our displays are incorporated into existing programs at Narmbool Environmental Learning Centre.  We also offer school incursions where our staff and birds visit primary and secondary schools to deliver a range of interactive programs.  We have also developed educational resources that are aligned with learning objectives within the Australian Curriculum (AusVELS) and can be purchased in advance. Our school programs can be booked for groups of up to 40 students at a time, depending on the size of the venue and facilities.

Meet the Beaks

Meet an awe inspiring bird of prey from the Leigh Valley Hawk and Owl Sanctuary – face to beak! Martin and his team will introduce you to the fascinating world of diurnal birds of prey (and teach you the meaning of words like ‘diurnal’.) Learn about the threats these birds face and how we can help them to survive. Witness firsthand the behaviour and remarkable adaptions of one or two of our beautiful birds.
Display format: Indoor bird of prey talk and display. 1-2 birds.
Duration: 45 minutes plus question time.

Full Raptor Experience

Meet 2-4 birds of prey, ranging in size from a Nankeen Kestrel to a Wedge-tailed Eagle, in our dramatic raptor presentation which focuses on exhibiting their natural behaviour. Learn about, and experience for yourselves, the unique adaptions these remarkable creatures utilise in their predatory way of life as they go through their paces. 
Display format:  This presentation requires a spacious environment and is ideally suited to a quiet outdoor area or a large indoor space such as a hall or gymnasium. The full raptor experience will be available from mid May 2015. Please note that not all our birds will be on display at every show and that some special new arrivals may appear throughout the year!
Duration: 45 minutes plus question time

Those Outstanding Owls

Available during the day or (for full impact) as an evening presentation, we take you into the mysterious nocturnal world of owls. You will meet 1-2 owls from our Sanctuary in this special presentation and learn about their habitat, how they hunt and their preferred prey. Feel what it’s like to be the prey of a Barn Owl or Southern Boobook as it swoops silently through the air.
Display format: Indoor presentation with our magnificent owls.
Duration: 45 minutes plus question time.
