Picnic Day - April 22 

The California Raptor Center (CRC) will have ambassador birds on display in the patio of Glady Valley Hall (next to the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital) at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. 

Come join us on-campus 10AM-2PM for all of the Picnic Day festivities!

Spring/Fall Open Houses

The CRC typically hosts Open Houses during the Fall and Spring on the third Saturday in October and the first Saturday in May. This year's Spring Open House will be on May 6.  Open House hours are 9AM-3PM and we also invite people to join our Hawk Walk which starts earlier at 8AM (bring binoculars).  

These are family-oriented days which allow members of the community to visit the Center for a fun-filled and educational experience. Lectures on raptor rehabilitation, identification, conservation and adaptations are presented during the day. Also, numerous handlers are available to answer questions about the live educational raptors they will be holding on “the fist.” Visitors are invited to follow the self-guided tour route and to visit the Museum for a hands-on experience. There is no charge for this event and parking is free.
