Wings to SOAR:  Wings to Soar’s mission is to create awareness about the vital role birds of prey play in the natural world.  Through their interactive outreach programs, they take environmental education to new heights.  In their FREE FLYING raptor programs, they give the audience a unique opportunity to view and interact with Birds of Prey up close.  Wings to Soar’s hope is to facilitate a connection to the natural world, and spark curiosity to create a sense of value for all forms of life.  Their greatest desire is to create a pathway for stewardship for generations to come.
