Get "up close and personal" to raptors and see how these birds of prey are rehabilitated and cared for.

“Rapture Rehab in Action!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This was a wonderful place to visit for a couple of hours. There is tremendous work being done to save and rehabilitate these wild birds. You can learn how these birds came to be at the Center, what their injuries were and what was done for them. Some are re-introduced into the wild, whenever possible, and others get to live out their lives at the Center with top-notch care. You can see these raptors up close and personal, especially during the show that the staff put on. Very positive and uplifting experience!

“Wild enjoyment”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This centre is filled with individuals who truly have these birds futures and pasts in there best interests. We watched a raptor show, learned about there histories. Their past and there habits.. There is a raptor viewing area that one can get up close and personal with birds that if left to there own defences would not be with us to appreciate and learn from. The walking trails are delighful and educational. there is much to do and see. A nice way to spend the day
