2010 Condor Celebration
NPS Photo by Paul Johnson
Saturday, September 25, 2010
Join us as we attempt to release up to two California condors for their first flight into the wild.
Bring water, hats, layered clothing, and food. Binoculars are recommended. High temperatures at the end of September can range from low 80s to above 100 degrees. There will be limited seating available, so bring camp chairs or blankets for picinic-style seating.
A live, remote video feed from the condor facility to the Visitor Center will display the young condors in the pen and the first flight of any released birds. In addition, the event will have speakers, informational and educational booths staffed by rangers and park partners, and an activity booth for children to draw and display their "condor wishes."
Because we use a passive release method, there is a chance the juvenile condors may not leave the holding pen. Even so, there will be a good chance to see already free-flying condors.
We will hold a condor celebration regardless of the weather.
Lodging is available in the area for those that do not wish to camp.
