Teton Raptor Center invites you to meet and learn about raptors at one of our programs in the community, in your classroom, at your private event, or even online. We also offer onsite programs at TRC, where reservations are required. We are not a display or walk-through facility, so booking a program is the best way to “meet the birds.”
See below to book your Avian Experience or learn more about our free community programs!

Avian Experience at TRC

Join us for a 60-minute up-close, live bird experience. Visit our newly restored historic barn to learn about raptors and their role in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. You’ll also discover more about our work in the field studying birds of prey and in our clinic, where we care for injured, ill, and orphaned raptors and corvids. Reservations are required.

Behind the Scenes Public Tours

Discover the world of raptors and their significance! Join us behind the scenes to understand the training and care involved in managing a diverse team of avian ambassadors. Delve into the science of training and welfare, witnessing daily enrichment and training routines in the Roost, where our education birds reside. While the birds free fly, there is no physical contact with the public. This program is for ages 6+. Due to concerns about Avian Influenza, we provide shoe covers upon entry to the Roost. Please avoid contact with poultry or waterfowl 72 hours before the program to prevent potential virus transfer.
