Wildlife Information Center
Educational Programs

Education is an important part of the mission of the Wildlife Information Center–the sharing part of our “gathering and sharing information.”  Education is key to what we do: on the lookout at Bake Oven Knob when we are doing our hawk migration research, at public meetings, during testimony before government bodies, or when someone walks into our office.  Our publications educate and inform.  Our public talks and slide shows educate community members.  Our Kittatinny Raptor Corridor Handbook has been distributed to libraries throughout the corridor region.
