Adopting a Raptor is a donation to support Eagle Creek’s Ornithology Center to protect wildlife and educate others on the benefits of wildlife protection!
OUR MISSION: By providing exemplary care, husbandry, training, and enrichment for our Raptor Ambassadors, we hope to foster a sense of wonder, enthusiasm, and stewardship for the natural world and to inspire action towards conserving the species that visitors encounter. OPERATING UNDER IN DNR EDUCATION AND USFWS EAGLE EXHIBITION PERMITS.
Each adoption level includes a digital personalized certificate with your chosen animal and a digital fact sheet that will be sent to your email. If you choose an adoption level with collectible buttons, they cannot be mailed and must be picked up in person at the center receiving your donation. If your adoption level includes a tour or program, these occur at the corresponding nature center, must be scheduled in advance, and will be coordinated with staff via email after you adopt.
All adoptions are symbolic and in no way signify ownership. All animals may be adopted by more than one person. Donations will go to the general nature center animal care funds and may not apply directly to your chosen animal. Thank you so much for your support!
Adoption certificates and fact sheets will be sent digitally to your email. Collectible buttons must be picked up in person at the Ornithology Center.
