Duke World of Energy has an interesting, free program that will expand your knowledge of birds.
Peter Kipp, a licensed falconer from Asheville, NC will share his passion for Falconry with others. There is nothing like handling and flying a bird of prey and seeing these magnificent creatures up close.
You will have a close and personal “hands on” experience with a bird of prey. Many guests will have the opportunity to handle the raptor and experience the exhilaration of having this magnificent bird perch on their gloved fist. Come fly with us!
Falconry is an ancient interaction and working relationship between man and animal. It has been practiced in some form in nearly every corner of the globe for centuries. Evolving from simple nomadic tradition to the sport of royalty to the now highly regulated pastime enjoyed by more than four thousand falconers here in U.S. and tens of thousands around the world.
June 15th @ 10 a.m.
Please RSVP for these free activities. Call the World of Energy at 864-873-4600.
