california raptor center open house

Special Events

The CRC typically hosts free Open Houses during the Fall and Spring on the third Saturday in October and the first Saturday in May. Open House hours are 9AM-3PM. At the Spring Open Houses, CRC volunteers lead a "Hawk Walk" at 8AM along the levee road (meeting at the front gate) — participants are encouraged to bring binoculars.

These are family-oriented days which allow members of the community to visit the Center for a fun-filled and educational experience. Lectures on raptor rehabilitation, identification, conservation and adaptations are presented during the day. Also, numerous handlers are available to answer questions about the live educational raptors they will be holding on “the fist.” Visitors are invited to follow the self-guided tour route and to visit the Museum for a hands-on experience. There is no charge for this event and parking is free.
