Register to Attend the Peregrine Falcon Workshop

On April 2, 2013, the Pennsylvania DEP will be hosting the Peregrine Falcon Educators’ Workshop in Harrisburg, Dauphin County. Teachers, non-formal educators, home-school teachers, and students are encouraged to attend.

The Peregrine Falcon Educators’ Workshop will begin at 9 a.m. and last until 3 p.m. in the Rachel Carson State Office Building auditorium at 400 Market St., Harrisburg. Workshop participants, who can attend for free, will explore the successes of peregrine falcon reintroduction in Pennsylvania; examine falcon specifics and endangered species concepts; and observe falcons in the area.

Since 1997, countless peregrine falcons, once an endangered species in Pennsylvania, have made their home on a ledge off the 15th floor of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Through reintroduction programs, peregrines have adapted to life in urban environments like Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Williamsport.

Each year, DEP and PGC track these birds of prey’s activities and share educational information with a worldwide audience through the Internet. The Rachel Carson nest site has been active and reproducing young peregrine falcons for 13 years.

To register for the workshop, contact DEP’s Environmental Education and Information Center at 717-772-1644, or email adevine@pa.gov, by March 26. Space is limited, and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, please click here.
