Hayden, a Swainson’s hawk

Join the Draper Museum Raptor Experience Program Manager, Melissa Hill, and Raptor Program Assistant, Brandon Lewis, on Friday, May 12 at 6 p.m. as they share the challenges and rewards of operating this birds of prey program.

Participants enjoy a private encounter with two of our raptor ambassadors: Hayden, a Swainson’s hawk, and Teasdale, a great horned owl. Guests also get hands-on with materials and tools that are used in the care of the Center’s resident raptors.

At the end of this Exclusive Tours & Toddies event, Melissa and Brandon bring the group back to the Exclusive Tours Depot for Q&A, charcuterie, and adult beverages. Guests can enjoy adorable owl-inspired cupcakes as well as the evening’s drink special: titled “Hayden’s Highball.” (No raptors will be harmed in the making of these confections…)

Don’t miss this exciting and exclusive evening!

This VIP Exclusive Tours and Toddies experience is $60 per person, and just $55 for Center of the West members.
