I found this raptor organization over 25 years ago. I fell in love with seeing the birds at the festivals they attend. Without such amazing opportunities to see birds up close and in person, few people would have a true understanding of the majesty of these birds. The education provided allows all of us to learn about the challenges each of these species face in our challenging world.

This is a wonderful organization. All the staff and many volunteers are dedicated to the saving of raptors. They rehabilitate birds for release and provide excellent education through their outreach programs. We are lucky to have this organization in our community.
