TV travel personality Huell Howser's visit to UC Davis will be televised in an hour-long show 8 p.m. July 12 on KVIE TV Channel 6, Sacramento. Howser's show will feature stops around campus, including the California Raptor Center at the School of Veterinary Medicine. The program is set to air on four other California public television stations later this year.

The California Raptor Center rehabilitates injured and orphaned raptors: owls, hawks, eagles and other birds of prey. The center receives more than 250 injured or ill raptors each year and is able to release more 60% of these birds back into the wild. The center provides hands-on training in the care and management of birds of prey. A dedicated group of volunteers provides educational programs to school groups and the general public through a program of field trips, classroom visits and open house events throughout the year.
Visitors are welcome Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday: 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Admission and parking are free.
