General HOP Presentations
Our most common presentations contain a bit of everything: our local owls and their natural history, info on HOP, the dangers of rodenticides, using owls as a means of non-toxic rodent control, an appearance by a live Ambassador Owl and a Q&A with HOP.
Non-Toxic Rodent Control Presentations
Many groups, such as those working with vineyards, farms, homeowners associations or anyone with rodent problems are most interested in non-toxic rodent control. For these groups we focus on using owls as a means of rodent control, additional Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques, a bit about HOP and our programs as well a visit with a live Ambassador Owl.
School & Youth Presentations
For younger audiences we usually focus more on our local owls and a little natural history, Q&A and a visit with a live Ambassador Owl.
For 1st grade and up.
Who does HOP present to?
Schools, community organizations, youth groups, ranger programs, and many other interested parties. We are based out of San Rafael, in Marin County, CA and serve the greater San Francisco Bay Area up through Sonoma and Napa Valley. However, our Ambassador Owls have a maximum travel time of one hour, which sets a limit on our travel range. We ask for a minimum audience of 10-15.
We require a minimum fee of $200 for our basic one-hour presentation. Additional donations are appreciated. Fees and donations help us cover our non-releasable Ambassador Owl expenses, educational materials and other costs associated with our education programs. Scholarships for school groups are available and are based on the school's free and reduced priced meal program.
