Snake River Raptor Festival Goes Online With Live Birds, Virtual Tours, And Concerts

Birds of Prey National Conservation Area Partnership

Have you ever wanted to take a tour of the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area? How about a guided walk along the petroglyphs in Celebration Park near Melba? Would you like to tips to better spot raptors? Draw a kestrel? Let your kids make a short-eared owl mask?

These are just a few of the virtual events going on next week, as the annual Snake River Raptor Festival adapts to the coronavirus.


Instead of one day of music, fun, and birds of prey, the festival will run Monday through next Saturday online!


With Idaho Matters today to talk about the festival are Steve Aslup, the President and Co-founder of the Birds of Prey NCA Partnership and Matt Podolsky, a board member of the Partnership.  

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
