Bring the flock for family fun with Winging It – Birds in Flight. This ticketed program stars native raptors and water birds, some of which soar overhead in Big Rock Theater in response to commands. The show highlights the unique features of various owls, hawks, pelicans, vultures and other species. The audience enjoys extraordinary close encounters with these engaging creatures. Tickets are just $2 in addition to admission for ages 3 and up.
The 2014 program uses the fun premise of a field trip with a wildlife biologist and an absent-minded intern to illuminate environmental issues that trouble these species, and solutions that can be incorporated into everyday life. All the birds in the show have injuries or conditions that prevent their release into the wild. Like all the Aquarium’s activities, the birds also deliver family-friendly entertainment.
Winging It – Birds in Flight runs daily at 1 p.m. in Big Rock Theater. Purchase tickets at admissions. There is no charge for “infants-in-arms” ages 2 and under.
