The World Center for Birds of Prey is the heartbeat of The Peregrine Fund’s education program. Located in Boise, Idaho, one of the most densely populated raptor regions in the world, it is an international destination for 50,000+ people a year. Visitors experience raptors up close and personally through live, daily raptor demonstrations and interactions with staff, volunteers, and exhibits that create a deeper understanding of these incredible birds and our role in conserving them for future generations.
The Center provides free school tours for more than 5,000 students annually engaging students in STEM learning that focuses on the scientific method through the lens of The Peregrine Fund’s global conservation projects.
The FUNDSY Charity Golf Tournament and Triple Crown special event will kickstart capital improvement for the Global Raptor Education Center. Upon completion, the Education Center will expand its student visit capabilities from 5,000 annually to over 10,000 student visits annually.
TRICA’s mission is to provide meaningful experiences in the arts taught by outstanding and loving educators, inspiring the children of the Treasure Valley to develop attitudes and values contributing to a stronger sense of community, humanity and good will.
TRICA was chosen as the 2018 beneficiary and received capital funding for the rehabilitation of a North End landmark and future home of TRICA.www.trica.org ↗
