No animal flies as fast as the falcon, which can hit speeds in excess of 200 mph, looking more like a guided missile with feathers than a bird. At one point in our recent history, falcon populations were hammered hard by pesticides (DDT), causing two of North America’s six species to become endangered, including the world famous peregrine. Rocky Mountain National Park played an important role in recovering the peregrine to the extent that they are no longer considered endangered. Learn about the history of falcons in Rocky, and the evolution, and natural history of all six North American species. At least three live falcons will be used to enhance the class’s educational impact. An afternoon field trip will visit historic peregrine release areas as well as current nesting and hunting habitats.
