Radical Raptors with the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey
Ever wonder about the birds of prey you see in Central Florida? Well, join us at this virtual presentation by Laura VonMutius of the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey to learn more about raptors. The Audubon Center is a rehab facility for birds of prey, you’ll get to hear about Audubon’s history, what makes a bird of prey, the typical injuries they get and how we all can help birds of prey in the wild. Plus, a couple bird ambassadors from the Audubon Center will be joining us, so you’ll get to virtually meet some live birds up close !Laura VonMutius, Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, Education Manager: Laura grew up in Orlando, has a B.S. from Florida State University in Art Education, and she continues to create art in her free time. Laura started her career as an educator at SeaWorld and then the Central Florida Zoo, where most recently she was a Conservation Educator and Resident Artist. She joined the Audubon team in February of 2017, and has enjoyed the ability to use birds as tools to teach about the environment.
Through her years of being an informal conservation educator, Laura has hosted summer camps, public and private schools, homeschools and special event programs, inspiring children and adults alike to take part in conserving wildlife. When it comes to her feathered co-workers, Laura isn’t supposed to have favorites – but she is partial to a sweet Barred Owl named Maple.
We look forward to seeing you online August 19th at 7:00 pm!
