The purpose of the Raptor Center is to rehabilitate injured birds of prey, and to educate the public about raptors, other wildlife, and conservation issues. Founded in 1970, the Glen Helen Raptor Center admits 150 to 200 birds of prey each year for rehabilitation, and releases more than half of them back to the wild. The Center is free for visitors. However, the flight cages are not open to the public, so the birds have a quiet place for recuperation.

I've been in the area many times and never heard of this gem, not sure how! They have an amazing array of raptors they're helping out and how clean this place was compared to other raptor sanctuaries blew my mind. I'll be back here many times I'm sure. Definitely recommend checking this place out, especially if you have kids or just love the animals.

They have a large number of raptors. They present programs for the public occasionally, but I have not attended one of those yet. Parking is very limited and could be improved.

Neat place to see big birds up close. Great place to check out occasionally especially if you live in the area.

A nice place to visit. It was hard to get any information about this place.
