Eagle Valley Raptor Center specializes in native Kansas Birds of Prey. These include Eagles, Hawks, Owls, Kites, Falcons and Vultures. The Center feels it an honor to help these animals become independent again and return back to their natural way of life.
Since 1998 the EVRC has taken in on average over 100 birds a year due to injuries, poisoning or orphaned as babies. A facility was built that not only would provide a place to care for these birds, but offered an educational opportunity for schools, churches, scout groups, 4-H, seniors and other appropriate organizations to come and learn about these important species to the Kansas environment.
EVRC offers exciting, upclose and personal, private-guided Tours for groups or organizations. Tours are approximately one hour long.
A covered Pavilion, able to seat 50 people, is available for lunches, cookouts or catered dinners. The program will include an educational, up close, out of cage viewing of several of the birds and “touchables” are available for children such as wings, feathers, and talons. Pellets and instructions on what to do with them are also available for science teachers.
Birds that are included in the program are a Great Horned Owl, Barn Owl, Barred Owl, Snowy Owl, Screech Owls, Eurasian Eagle Owl, Red-tailed Hawk, Harris Hawk Golden Eagle and Bald Eagle.
