Lois Auer

 As an artist and naturalist, Lois has spent the last 20 years studying wildlife and nature. She continues to do field studies as well as reading and attending lectures, giving her a broad understanding of our environment. Loisí journey into the world of raptors began in 1992 with a visit to the Wildlife Center of Virginia, a wildlife rehabilitation hospital. There she photographed the resident birds of prey to use as models for her artwork. Enamored, Lois volunteered as an animal caretaker in the hospital. That experience enabled her to come into contact with wildlife and to directly see the impact that man has on it. After about 2 years, Lois was invited to become a docent and at that time began her tenure as an educator. She was taught how to handle many species of birds of prey and how to convey information and ideas to people of all ages.  Her easy-going style and sense of humor have helped her to develop an enjoyable and informative presentation.

In 1994 Lois began the long application process and was granted her Federal Education Permit in 1995. Lois currently holds permits from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and Maryland Department of Natural Resources to possess non-releasable birds of prey for education.  Her permits allow her do programs in Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia and Washington, D.C.
