Thank you to the 500+ attendees of the Fall Open House on Saturday October 15, 2016. The event was a huge success thanks to the support of our community combined with the tireless efforts of volunteers and staff who are passionate about the California Raptor Center and the Center's raptor residents. 

The CRC typically hosts Open Houses during the Fall and Spring on the third Saturday in October and the first Saturday in May. 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.
