Join us in the Discovery Amphitheater for an exciting and inspiring learning experience. Presented with the permission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Callaway Resort & Gardens’ Birds of Prey program is a must-see when you come for a visit.
Since its debut in 2000, the program has helped educate well over a million visitors about man’s impact on raptors and other forms of wildlife. During suitable weather, these magnificent creatures – which cannot be released into the wild, due either to injury or having developed an unnatural association with humans known as “imprinting” – demonstrate their strength, speed, and natural instincts in daily flighted shows.
Several birds appear at each show, swooping overhead and giving guests an up-close look “on the glove,” while our raptor experts explain how man’s actions affect their well-being. Callaway also offers a program called Adopt-A-Raptor, which enables visitors to help support the feeding, training, housing, husbandry, and medical care of one of our resident raptors.
