More than 300 birds are brought to the Raptor Center annually—find out more about their care and what it takes to successfully release them back to the wild.

The Raptor Center customarily holds an Open House twice annually, in Spring and Fall.  The Spring event is usually on the first Saturday in May and the Fall event on the third Saturday in October.  During the Open House many of our education birds will be out on the glove for you to look at up close. The program also generally includes special presentations at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., and our Hawk Walk which starts earlier at the CRC gate at 8:00 a.m. (bring binoculars). Cameras welcome, but no flash please.  See scenes from recent Open House event here.
