the Desert Sky
Tickets must be purchased by noon
May 27 through Labor Day (Monday, September 4), enjoy our signature summer outdoor flight program: Raptors of the Desert Sky. Watch as hawks, owls, falcons and even a turkey vulture fly, quite literally, right overhead. Listen to the stories of these birds as a Museum curator narrates the action and introduces the hunting strategies and natural behaviors of these spectacular birds of prey.
Purchase tickets at Admissions no later than 12:00 pm. It’s a 15 minute walk from Admissions to the trail entrance just north of the Miller Family Ranch. The trail to the flight area is rough and difficult for strollers and not accessible for wheelchairs.
A Museum staff member will meet the group at this trail entrance, collect tickets and explain about the flight show. It’s another 400 yards to the clearing where the flight program takes place; seating is limited. The gate closes at 12:25 pm and there is no late entry as protection for the birds.
Daily at 12:30 pm, except July 4 when the Museum is closed
Non-members $5, children ages 5-12 $3, plus admission
Children ages 4 and under, free
