RAPTOR Inc. will open our doors to the public on the last Sunday of each month (March-November) from 1pm to 4pm. During these times our educators will be available to welcome guests, lead tours, conduct educational programs with our avian ambassadors, share biological artifacts, and answer questions. Participate in special activity stations, shop for merchandise, and enjoy some treats! The Open Houses are FUN and FREE! (Private tours and educational programs can still be scheduled at other times by appointment.)
Open House Reservations:
To ensure proper social distancing and to best protect our visitors and staff, the number of guests that we can accommodate during our Open House events will be restricted. Reservation requests for specific arrival time slots are HIGHLY recommended and will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis.
Please submit a reservation request via the form at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/P77SW2X . We will confirm your reservation arrival time via email.
We will fit in unscheduled guests IF space is available. If space is not available, guests will be asked to wait for an available time slot or to visit at another time. Please comply with all guidelines so that we can welcome as many guests as possible during the event and keep the Open House event free of charge.
At your reserved time, your group (of 10 or less) will be greeted by a RAPTOR Inc. educator. Your educator will lead your group on a tour through the facility. The tour will include visiting various educational stations where you can see and learn about the birds of prey native to our area and the work that RAPTOR Inc. does to protect these magnificent creatures.
Please only claim a reservation arrival time if you actually plan to arrive during that time. Claiming a reservation time then not showing up only prevents other guests from being able to attend and may lead to the need to charge a fee for the event in the future.
Please arrive during the time reserved. If you arrive early, please wait in your vehicle until your reserved time. If you arrive late, you may be asked to wait for an open time slot or to visit at another time.
