The mission of the Black Hills Raptor Center is to conserve and protect native birds of prey and their natural habitats through education, rehabilitation, and research.
We provide 125-150 educational programs annually using live raptors. We present in classrooms, at youth programs, in the community, and for special events.
We are growing! Building is in progress for a new facility to house our education birds. Our long-term goal is to create a facility that can be visited by the public, will provide raptor rehabilitation services in western South Dakota, and will conduct scientific research on birds found in our region.
We are a not-for-profit organization with a 501(c) 3 status from the Internal Revenue Service.
