Free workshop examines peregrine falcons

HARRISBURG – “Wild in the City,” a peregrine falcon educators’ workshop, will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 2 at the Rachel Carson State Office Building auditorium, 400 Market St., Harrisburg.

The registration deadline for the free workshop is March 26.

Since 1997, countless peregrine falcons have made their home on a ledge off the 15th floor of the office building.

For many years, peregrine falcons were a Pennsylvania endangered species, but through reintroduction programs, they have adapted to life in urban environments such as Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Williamsport.

The workshop will feature a number of peregrine falcon experts, and participants will explore the successes of peregrine falcon reintroduction in Pennsylvania, examine falcon specifics and endangered species concepts and observe falcons in Harrisburg.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided at no cost.

Space is limited, and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Information: 717-772-1644 or email
