of Prey Center
Get a close-up look at some of nature’s most spectacular predators – owls, hawks, eagles, falcons and even vultures. There are Charisma the bald eagle, Nicholas the golden eagle, Luna the great horned owl and more birds of prey.
Twice a day during our Bird of Prey Encounters, our wildlife staff introduces you to one of the birds in our care and sheds light on their way of life in the High Desert. Please check the Daily Schedule for the latest times.
All of the animals cared for at the Museum cannot be released to the wild. Most of them were rescued after being injured and many cannot fly. Other animals rely on us just to survive because they never learned how to hunt or avoid predators. When people take young animals from their parents, these animals become “imprinted” on humans and can no longer survive in the wild. Please help us feed and care for them through our Adopt an Animal program. It makes a great gift!
