New Black Hills Raptor Center Facility Journey!

The story of the journey to building the New Black Hills Raptor Facility was shared by Maggie the 2012 Guideposts Magazine article, “Embracing Hope and Soaring in Troubled Times.”

Continuing to this day as volunteers working from their homes, Maggie and John coordinate with other volunteers to feed, train, care for, and present programs with seven avian ambassadors. All the species of raptors at the Black Hills Raptor Center are native to South Dakota.

Help build the New Black Hills Raptor Center Facility

Passionate about their birds and their calling to teach about the natural world, Maggie & John’s long term goals include building the New Black Hills Raptor Center Facility.  This will become the home for the non-profit, and include a state of the art rehabilitation facility as well a permanent aviaries for the educational birds.

Furthermore the New Black Hills Raptor Center Facility will make it possible for the co-founders and others interested to conduct research on birds in general, and birds of prey specifically. Efforts such as monitoring lead levels in all injured raptors brought in for treatment; partnering with others on providing kestrel nest boxes for this species, and collecting data from them, and banding birds can occur once the group is established on its site.
