Interested in Booking Dmitri?
In addition to his work onsite as a raptor educator, Dmitri also is available for private appearances to support the work we do at the Cascades Raptor Center. He has experience with photoshoots, corporate events, weddings, and film sets. The base rate for a visit by Dmitri is $350, with an additional surcharge that depends on the specific circumstances of the request.
If you are interested in having Dmitri appear at your event, contact us at (541) 485-1320 for more information. Please provide detailed information including a description of the location for the appearance and whether Dmitri would be a passive visitor or active participant in a flight or training demonstration.
Dmitri was hatched in human care in St. Louis, Missouri at the World Bird Sanctuary. He joined the Raptor Center’s education team in 2010, at two months old, to help us expand and improve on fundraising and educational outreach opportunities. As a non–native species, Dmitri can go where native ambassador raptors cannot, due to federal regulations. He specializes in making appearances at private parties or special events, and helps us further our mission of connecting people to wildlife by visiting fundraisers held for the Raptor Center in the Eugene community. He’s also a skilled and enthusiastic flyer, and frequently wows guests with his impressive wingspan and silent flight during training sessions.
