The Next Raptor Center open house will be held on May 7th, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There will be special presentations given at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. We also invite people to join our Hawk Walk which starts earlier at the CRC gate at 8:00 a.m. (bring binoculars). Cameras welcome, but no flash please. 

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.
