Prairie Raptors (Ideal for all ages) Now Available in French
Fee: $100 (60 min)
It’s hard to believe that a golden eagle, with a six-foot wingspan, could have anything in common with a fast moving, four-inch hummingbird. All birds, even those as different as a golden eagle and a hummingbird, share some common traits, such as feathers, wings, laying eggs and being warm-blooded. However, there are certain characteristics that set the group of birds called raptors apart from other birds. In this program, students will learn all there is to know about raptors, specifically the raptors that call Manitoba home and are helped by PWRC. Not only are raptors very fascinating animals, but they are very important to our environment and many different ecosystems. Our wildlife ambassadors will also be present, so everyone can see up close their special adaptations.

Owls and falcons will help raise awareness about the importance of living in harmony with Manitoba’s wildlife. PWRC staff and the education ambassadors together will read stories and learn interesting facts about these wondrous birds.
Winter Wonders (Ideal for Kindergarten to Grade 6) Now Available in French
We’re excited to bring the wonder of winter to your school. Your class will discover the five main strategies that animals use to survive the cold winter months. Some animals tough it out all winter long (Stay Active), some stay and sleep it away (Hibernation and Torpor), others travel south (Migration) and lastly some die, leaving behind the next generation (Die). We will discuss how wildlife adapts to deal with the cold months of winter. This visit includes a visit from two of our ambassadors, where the students can use what they just leaned to determine what they do over the winter.
