Then contact the Connecticut Parrot Society (CPS) and request an Outreach and Education program!

As part of our mission to educate the public about the responsible keeping and breeding of parrots, we offer FREE custom-tailored presentations to groups of all ages. Donations to CPS, no matter how big or small, are always appreciated!

While our programs are always amusing, our focus is on education. Please note that we do not provide entertainment at private parties. Our birds may be photographed but for everyones safety, birds may only be handled by CPS members.

To request an Outreach and Education program, contact Bridget Moran, Outreach and Education Coordinator, by telephone at 860-921-8209, or by email at

We look forward to meeting you!
