The RMRP rehabilitation facility at 720 E. Vine Drive is not open to the public on a regular basis. We do offer tours scheduled in advance and host open house days three times/year.
Private Behind the Scenes Tours explore the main rehabilitation facility on Vine Drive, including various work areas and may include some of the raptor enclosure facilities. Visitors will learn about rehabilitation management of cases and how the RMRP trains and coordinates volunteers and staff to provide care for the birds 365 days/year. Injuries, therapies, and issues involved in caring for raptors are also discussed. The tour may include an opportunity to meet an educational raptor.
Tours are part inside, part outside, so please dress for the weather. All guests will be walking through disinfecting foot baths (to protect the raptors from possible contagions), so please wear shoes you can get wet. The parts of the hospital that are available to tour may change daily based upon current caseload, weather, and biosecurity concerns. Tours last from one to one and a half hours and involve walking and standing on gravel surfaces and uneven ground.
These tours are designed for your particular group's interests and ages and are scheduled for your convenience. Please allow at least 2 weeks to schedule. Fee: $10 per person with a minimum of $50. Maximum size group is 10. Groups with more than 10 people are encouraged to contact Carin Avila, Education Director, firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a presentation. Call (970) 484-7756 or email email@example.com to schedule. All fees support the mission of the RMRP.
