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 (rehabilitation section is not open to the public). The museum is also open for self-guided tour visitors. There is no charge for parking. Please keep self-guided tour groups to 6 people or fewer to minimize stress to the birds. If you would like to schedule a guided tour and/or have a group larger than 6 please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your request. 

Did you find an injured or orphaned bird of prey during our non-open hours? You can take it to the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) or contact Yolo County Animal Services (if you’re in Yolo County).

California Raptor Center is located at 1340 Equine Lane, Davis, just off Old Davis Rd. If coming from UC Davis, keep straight on Old Davis Rd and go under I-80, over the train tracks, and past the horses. Then go up a slight incline and turn left before the bridge. Follow the road until you come to a "Y" and take the left part of the "Y" down the incline and turn right into the Raptor Center parking lot. DO NOT go over the cattle grates.

If traveling Interstate 80, take the UC Davis exit. If exiting from eastbound lanes, go right on Old Davis Road. You will not go under I-80. If exiting from westbound lanes, turn left at the end of the ramp and go under I-80 on to Old Davis Road.
