Rocky Mountain Raptor Center at Colorado State University Hosts Mother’s Day Open House on May 12

The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program will host a holiday open house on May 12, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Visitors can enjoy a tour of the center and learn more about the special work with injured birds of prey and how to become involved. Families are welcome. Refreshments will be served.

Visitors will have the opportunity to meet non-releasable (permanently injured) birds available for adoption through the Adopt-a-Raptor Program.

Many birds of prey will be on display, including a bald eagle, golden eagle, great horned owl, and a peregrine falcon.

Visitors can learn about the volunteer program, construction projects, environmental education presentations, and our public outreach exhibits. Many raptor gift items are available through our Raptor Gift Shop, including jewelry, stuffed animals, mugs, coloring books, and educational materials.

This is an exciting opportunity to learn more about birds of prey, our environment, and how every individual can make a difference.

The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program is located north of the Colorado State University James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital, 300 W. Drake Road, Fort Collins, CO 80523. For more information call 970-491-0398.
