       Bringing Raptors Home

​       Wildlife Rehabilitation

We offer a wide variety of exciting and informative programs and events. Programs are usually 45 to 60 minutes long and most can be adjusted for children, families, or adults. Our programs use audio visual materials and children's programs may include games and activities like dissecting owl pellets, coloring, making raptor puppets or other age appropriate creative projects (of course adults can do these things too). We can also set up a raptor themed booth for walk-by events. Best of all, most programs give you the opportunity to meet and interact with one or more of our wild raptor ambassadors.

We request a fee of $300 for our educational presentations and $100 for each additional presentation at the same location on the same day. Contact us for a quote for very large or small programs, exhibit booths and non-profit events.  We are an all volunteer 501(c)(3) organization. All donations go directly to the care, feeding, housing and medical care of our birds.  ​​

In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we have been taught
