Raptor Exhibit

The Raptor Exhibit is a seasonal exhibit. The birds-of-prey will be available for viewing May thru November. If you plan to visit in May or November please call the Center at 800 257-2570 for specific dates.

Raptors are a type of bird of prey that specializes in catching and killing their prey with their talons. Often they have several other important adaptations that help them succeed as hunters, but the feature that distinguishes them from other birds of prey, like pelicans and herons, is their feet.

Diurnal (daytime) raptors typically have adaptations that make them faster in flight, and they rely more on acute vision than their nocturnal (night time) counterparts. Nocturnal raptors, on the other hand, tend to have muffled feathers, so that their flight is nearly silent and they tend to have better hearing than the raptors that dominate in the daytime.

The Center has several raptors who, for various reasons, can no longer survive in the wild. Visit the raptor exhibit to see some of these amazing predators.

The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center is staffed with caring naturalists who are very helpful and knowledgeable. How cool is it that the kids can hide "snacks" for the Grizzly bears to find right inside their habitat! The animals were very respected and cared for.

This is my second time visiting and it seems to be better than the last time. The displays were well done and informative, the live bird show was a must. They rotate through a large selection of bears about every hour so the longer you stay the more bears you will see.
