The West Valley Outdoor Learning Center Mission:

To provide opportunities for young people to investigate and learn about the natural world around them. Currently, 3,500 students in Spokane and neighboring counties participate through programs, like the Hawk and Owl Outreach Talks (H.O.O.T.) program which introduces the student and adult audiences to the incredible world of raptor adaptations.  
This program also looks at the different roles that specific raptors play as ecological indicators. Critical habitat issues and species of specific concern are also addressed.  
Students are given opportunities to see live education birds up close and build personal connections to wildlife.
