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 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 and special events, and helps us further our mission of connecting people to wildlife by visiting community fundraisers held for the Raptor Center. He’s also a skilled and enthusiastic flyer, and frequently wows guests with his impressive wingspan and silent flight during training sessions.
