2024-05-23T13:00:00Z 2024-05-23T16:00:00Z Outdoor Adventure Center - Active Aging Adventures Brunch & Learn: Peregrine Falcons in Detroit

During this monthly series for active aging adults, participants will have opportunities to meet our on-site educators, listen to guest presenters and take part in various natural resource-themed activities. All programs begin at 9 a.m. and include pastries, coffee and tea upon entry. At 9:30 a.m., presentations will begin, so sit back and enjoy your snack during an exciting and informative program, then wrap up with time to explore the OAC exhibits.

Fee: $8 per person; preregistration required. Payment can be made for groups or individuals.

From the edge of extinction to conquering concrete jungles – in May, we dive into the history of the world’s fastest animal, the peregrine falcon. Follow along and learn about this amazing raptor's journey to recovery and how falconry, the sport of kings, played a pivotal role.

Danielle Durham has been the peregrine falcon nest coordinator with the Department of Natural Resources since 2019. This position has involved monitoring peregrine falcon nests, assisting with fledgling birds, coordinating with site contacts and collaborating with wildlife rehab facilities in southeast Michigan. As a naturalist, wildlife educator and falconer, Danielle is deeply involved in avian conservation and has had the pleasure of working with many different species of birds.
