The Glen Helen Raptor Center is a non profit organization which takes in about 150 injured or orphaned birds of prey a year. The Raptor Center is run by a former volunteer turned director, Betty Ross. For over 30 years she has been caring for injured birds, conducting public educational programs, and assisting state agencies with recovery efforts for endangered and threatened species.
So what kind of bird can you find here? Hawks, owls, falcon’s, vultures, kites, osprey and eagles.
While we were talking, Harry Marsh brought in an injured, juvenile hawk.
