There are additional costs for travel over 100 miles from Birds of Prey Northwest. All program costs go to pay for food and care of our rehabilitating and educational birds.

​​All programs include a lifesize wingspan banner, where kids and adults can compare their human armspan to the wingspans of a bald eagle and other birds.

Program One: Five different species of raptors including either bald or golden eagle. $500

Program Two: Five different species not including eagle—appropriate for younger ages. $350

Program Three:​ 
Janie shares her new nonfiction picture book Beauty and the Beak: How Science, Technology, and a 3D-Printed Beak Rescued a Bald Eagle. Books will be available for purchase starting in summer 2017.
​* Please note that Beauty does not travel for live raptor programs that are away from BOPNW's grounds.

Program 3 can be combined with Program 1 or 2. Cost will vary according to length of program/s and audience size.

Raptors are fascinating birds: the silent night-hunting owls, the day-hunting hawks, the fish eating ospreys, the fast flying falcons, and the mighty eagles. Birds of Prey Northwest offers educational programs and author visits—including live raptors and/or Janie Veltkamp’s new children’s book Beauty and the Beak—for all ages.
