Sport of Kings Day

When: Sat., Sept. 23, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. 2017

The ancient art of falconry — training birds of prey to hunt on behalf of humans — is alive and well and on display at Sport of Kings Day. Ornithology enthusiasts flock to the Vermont Institute of Natural Science Nature Center and spread their wings in activities and demonstrations dedicated to this time-honored practice. High-flying raptor demos, tracking walks, songbird feedings and hands-on archery presentations are just a few of the avian items on the agenda. Attendees can even come face-to-face with modern-day falconers from New England Falconry. Costumes are encouraged at this gaming-bird extravaganza.

Price: Regular admission, $13-15; free for members and kids 3 and under.
