MALDEN, MO (KFVS) -

Heartland kids have an exciting opportunity to learn about Birds of Prey Sunday, September 4 in the Bootheel.

The Bootheel Youth Museum is hosting an event at 2 p.m.

Rodney Paul of Raptor Rehab of Central Arkansas will bring four owls, two hawks and a bald eagle all the way from Little Rock, Arkansas to teach kids about raptors.

All of the birds involved in the event are "glove trained". Kids will get a once-in-a-lifetime, up-close look at birds humans normally only see soaring in the sky. Paul will hold the birds as he teaches the children about the raptors that are all native to Missouri.

The Birds of Prey presentation is expected to last 45 minutes to one hour. Kids will also learn the importance of wildlife conservation, and why Paul and his colleagues work so hard to rehabilitate and protect raptors.

The birds will also be available for pictures after the presentation concludes.
