The Sacred Scarlets educational program presents lectures and demonstrations featuring two young, beautiful captive-bred scarlet macaws. These lectures and demonstrations address conservation as well as the scarlet macaw’s fascinating history in American Southwest culture.

Kelley McGalliard, Founder of Rise of the Phoenix Foundation, presents these amazing birds as ambassadors for their protection in the wild while sharing their long, rich, sometimes mysterious and often unknown history in the American Southwest.

Sacred Scarlets is available for a variety of venues including:

• Corporate and private events, resorts, schools, clubs, retirement communities, nursing homes.
• Also veterans groups, Native American cultural events, programed events for at-risk youth & challenged adults.
• These services are tailored to your event whether it be one time or an ongoing engagement.
