Discovery Gateway Goes “WILD” with New Monthly LIVE Bird Show 

July 2, 2021— Salt Lake City, Utah—Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum (DGCM) is flying high this summer by hosting LIVE bird shows aimed at introducing animal sciences to young children. Partnering with Hawkwatch International, these new opportunities allow families to actively dive into science and inspire children to care about the world around them, including the impact they can have on wildlife! 

“Our visitors love live animals and learning–this combines them both!” said Kathleen, Bodenlos CEO/Executive Director. “This program is not only fun, but it teaches children about the natural world and the impact they have on it. We are thrilled to partner with Hawkwatch on this exciting new program at the museum.” 

In the museum’s monthly program, Raptors and Reading, children are introduced to early animal sciences and literacy through meeting live predatory birds and reading a child storybook that matches the bird of the month! Included with admission, children will be able to meet large and small birds alike including golden eagles, screech owls, hawks and bald eagles! 

Families will be able to attend this monthly animal science program which will be held every second Saturday of the month at 10:00AM starting July 10th. Admission can be bought here.
