International Vulture Awareness Day Celebration
This event will include a live vulture program, educational crafts and activities for children, and information on the Sanctuary’s long-term research on the social scavenging raptor.
Visitors are encouraged to head to the trails in search of a vulture soaring low over the lookouts. Trail fee applies for non-members if hiking on the trails.
On the way, visitors can take the Silhouette Trail, which features a trail-side gallery of life-size, in-flight silhouettes of 7 of the world’s 22 species of vultures and condors, including four New World species (Turkey Vulture, Black Vulture, Andean Condor, and California Condor) and three Old World species (Hooded Vulture, Griffon Vulture, and Egyptian Vulture).
A brochure describing these will be available at the trail entrance.
Programs are free with trail fee, and live vulture program is free.
