Join Peninsula Open Space Trust and Santa Clara County Parks for Raptor Fest at Rancho San Vicente!

Raptors play an integral role in the health of our ecosystems. This free educational event features an array of presentations, interpretive walks, and a chance to visit local wildlife and conservation nonprofits or groups who work to protect vital species in the Bay Area!

This is a unique opportunity to see and learn about birds of prey and the importance of conservation in our communities. Presentations will include:

  • Master Falconer Kenny Elvin of Full Circle Falconry - Kenny Elvin will be providing a 45-minute falconry presentation twice during the event, at 12:30 PM and 2:30 PM. Kenny will share about the history of falconry as well as the biology and habits of raptors. The presentation may involve a flight demonstration depending on conditions.

  • Jeff Caplan - Jeff weaves together 30 years as a naturalist and a teacher of communication skills to learn a common language for understanding and connecting more deeply to birds and nature. His presentation will be at 1:45 PM.

The event will include a variety of guided nature walks with Santa Clara County interpretive staff, as well as informational booths and activities related to using binoculars and observing birds in the wild! Check back for a full schedule closer to the event.

Guests will receive more information about the full schedule, parking, and other details once they have registered for the event. Please monitor this page for possible weather cancellation.
