In an effort to improve wildlife care through continuing education, we offer classes targeted for the professional as well as those serious about wildife - those that are perhaps considering a career or volunteer position in wildlife. Our professional series are all day intensive seminars in which you will learn more than you could have imagined. Our current professional training seminars consist of:
Animal Control Officer Wildlife Training - Specifically designed for Animal Control Officers, Police Officers and Community Service Officers, our ACO Wildlife Training Class is a full-day program that will prepare professionals for all aspects of dealing with wildlife.
Raptor Workshop - This 1-1/2 day class is designed as an introduction to birds of prey and their care targeted for Nature Center and wildlife staff and volunteers, along with those just serious about birds of prey. This is also a great class for anyone considering enrollment in our 10-week raptor internship.
Raptor Internship - This intensive 10-week (one day/week) class will teach you all aspects of birds of prey and their care, including handling and training. Successful completion of the Raptor Internship is a prerequisite for handling birds of prey at Flint Creek Wildlife. We can honestly say that we haven't had a single person complete this course that wasn't thrilled with the experience!
Veterinary Internship - CLOSED - NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2012
Flint Creek Wildlife offers full-time and part-time internships program that provide interns with hands-on experience in many aspects of wildlife care and management.
Our professional classes are taught by Flint Creek Wildlife's Founder and Director, Dawn Keller.
