Plan Your Visit

The CRC is open for self-guided tours during all hours of operation. Our non-releasable raptors are on the tour route, with informative placards describing each bird and its personal story (sorry, the rehabilitation section is not open to the public). The Museum is also open for self-guided tour visitors.

There is no charge for parking, and admission is free for self-guided tours.

Please keep self-guided tour groups to 6 people or fewer to minimize stress to the birds. If you would like to schedule an on-site presentation and/or have a group larger than 6 please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
