Due to COVID-19, there will be no NPS Ranger programs in 2020.
Next season we hope have the Birds of Prey program again, where you can meet live raptors and learn more about their vital role in the ecosystem.
If you want to see the birds of prey in their natural habitat, ask park rangers to suggest trails to mountaintops where the peregrines nest. Then watch the young ones fly at incredibly high speed as they perform astounding acrobatics. You’ll be amazed – even awed – as you watch peregrine siblings play, gripping their talons together and tumbling through the air.
If you’d like to explore how our park biologists are helping relocate coastal peregrine checks to the mountaintops of Shenandoah through a process called hacking, click HERE to learn more.
