For all ages. The sport of falconry has a rich history throughout the world. It involves a dedicated and knowledgeable falconer, and a healthy, well-trained raptor working together as a team. Come meet Chris Paparo and his Red-tailed Hawk as he talks about the instincts of raptors, how they are trained and what it took to become a falconer.

This program will take place in the Lower Level Program Room of the library. Masks required for ages two and up.


About the Speaker

Born and raised on Long Island (New York), Chris Paparo has been exploring the wilds of the island for over 30 years. As a wildlife photographer, writer and lecturer, he enjoys bringing public awareness to the diverse wildlife that calls the island home. His passion for coastal ecology, fishing and the outdoors led him to obtain a BS in Marine Science from LIU/Southampton and currently manages the new Marine Sciences Center at the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University.
In addition to freelance writing for several fishing and wildlife related publications, Paparo currently writes the monthly Naturalist’s Logbook column for the NY/NJ edition of On The Water Magazine. Although his work tends to focus on marine life, everything in the natural world is fair game.
