A valuable source of education

Rutland Falconry and Owl Centre offers rare educative opportunities – attracting many different species of wildlife while playing host to a wide variety of plant life and fungi.

In addition to existing conservation activities, RFOC offers so much potential for further surveys and projects.

Moth trapping and entomology nights have been held at the centre in the past.

Bat walks could be a further possibility, the addition of cameras within some of the nesting boxes and short courses on woodland crafts coupled with the Chris Lawton’s existing, extensive knowledge of falconry could all add to the educational variety / value of RFOC.

Nestbox building days, chainsaw sculpture, woodturning and entomological displays have been held on days which allowed the public access to a wider range of information on the subject of our environment.
