Every Wednesday, November through March
Tracy Aviary is open year-round, so why not take advantage of the slower season by getting to spend more quality time with the birds? Without the bustling crowds of the summer, Tracy Aviary is a beautiful place to come relax next to some roaming peafowl, watch the keas play with all kinds of fun toys, and hide out in the tropical warmth of the South American Pavilion. Free-flight encounters are held in a beautiful, heated space as well, so be sure to check that out!
And what’s the best part of all of this? On Wednesdays, November through March, admission is only $1! That dollar goes entirely toward conservation efforts to help ensure the continuation of endangered species protection programs, so you’re not only getting to visit Tracy Aviary; you’re also getting to help save the birds! Come on in, and expect to see some special surprises coming soon to Tracy Aviary!
Veterans Day is Tuesday, November 11th, but Tracy Aviary is honoring veterans and first responders all month long. We are offering just $1 admission to all veterans, active-duty military, Purple Heart and Gold Star families, and first responders with valid ID. Just like with our Winter Wednesdays special, this $1 admission goes directly toward supporting conservation efforts for endangered bird species. From all of us at Tracy Aviary, thank you for your service.
Flying WILD Professional Development
Saturday, November 15th
Looking for some professional development opportunities? This fun-filled, interactive educator training is ideal for classroom teachers, environmental educators, school administrators, after-school program staff, youth group/service organization leaders, or anyone who loves birds and wants to teach others about them. The Flying WILD program trains formal and non-formal educators to facilitate hands-on, standards-based activities that promote understanding of scientific concepts and engage students in environmental stewardship. Each activity has been created to help participants excel academically through real, scientific inquiry and learn the importance of birds and their conservation.
