Free Flight Learning Center
Free Flight's Learning Center programs educate the public about the specialized needs of companion birds.
We inform participants about the numerous species of rare and endangered birds living among us, their care, feeding, behavior, and conservation efforts in their natural habitats. Free Flight offers educational programs at the sanctuary for both adults and children, as well as hosting field trips, bringing education programs to schools, libraries, nursing homes and community events.
Our unique tropical outdoor setting located in Del Mar allows parrots and people to interact. Just like most of us, birds thrive on human attention. While at Free Flight you can enjoy the opportunity to handle the birds and learn about them from our Free Flight staff and docents.
- Children learn new skills while having fun with the birds.
- Seniors enjoy socializing with the patrons and the parrots.
- Community events increase parrot awareness
Teens 13-17 years participate in a week-long program in mid July designed to educate them on becoming docents at the sanctuary. See our calendar for dates and times.
Children ages 8-12 years spend a week in late June learning and having fun with the birds. See our calendar for dates and times.
Adults 55 + who would like to get involved as docents may complete a 3 hour training course at the sanctuary covering basic avian knowledge.
