Avian Enrichment Projects – Great idea for Scouts of all Levels!

Please contact us if you know of a Scout in need of a unique project that may be created off site to be installed on site.  We are looking for folks to tackle specific Perch projects to create a better captive environment for our resident Raptors.  Tire Perches, Bow Perches, Wrapped Perches (sisal, hemp, cocoa,) Swinging Perches, Block Perches, etc.  We are also looking for toys that are safe and inspiring.

 

TOURING OUR CENTER BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

Please know that we invite the public to visit us onsite. This is a sacred space and the Birds home or place of healing. We offer tours by APPOINTMENT only. We are NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC on a regular schedule due to our hectic schedules. Tours are a great way to learn more about APCH and the many birds native to our State. Tours typically last 45 minutes to an hour. Since all is outdoors, dress according to weather. Weather must cooperate so if it is raining, snowing, sleeting or otherwise icky outside, we must reschedule.

Currently there are no PUBLIC RESTROOM FACILITIES. We are fundraising now to generate enough money to install a composting restroom facility on site. This outhouse will make onsite programming, events, tours and volunteer days much more comfortable.

Wish List Items are always welcome when you come for a visit. Please see our Wish List under the How You Can Help tab.

For Tours consisting of 6 people and under our suggested fee is $25.

For Tours consisting of 6 or more people, our suggested fee is $5 per person.

Please know that all money raised goes directly into the care of the many birds at our Center.

Tours require us to pull away from routine care and schedules. If you make an appointment for a tour and can not keep it, please let us know. If your group is over 6 people, it requires two tour guides. We are all volunteers, so our time is valuable just like yours.

To schedule a tour, please email hope4raptors@yahoo.com

We look forward to sharing with you!

TWO HOUR MEET AND GREET $400

This Presentation style is different. We bring along four species of Birds of Prey and rotate the birds during the two hour session. This is not a presentation where an audience must sit and listen for the entire time. This style offers an opportunity for an audience to approach and listen and ask questions during this informal back and forth. We stand behind a table/booth and share each bird with whomever comes forward. Great option for festival style events, weddings, parties, etc. where other things are happening simultaneously.
