Teton Raptor Center is a nonprofit organization of conservation biologists, veterinarians, wildlife rehabilitators, educators and volunteers, working together to help birds of prey and promote environmental health through veterinary care and rehabilitation, educational programs and conservation research. We are located at the historic Hardeman Ranch, a Jackson Hole Land Trust protected property in Wilson, Wyoming. Our work has three key components:
- Education - Teton Raptor Center provides classroom and assembly programs for schools, as well as natural history and raptor ecology programs for students of all ages.
- Conservation - Teton Raptor Center partners with wildlife biologists, public land agencies, naturalists, students and community members to protect and sustain healthy populations of birds of prey and raptor habitat.
- Rescue and Rehabilitation - Teton Raptor Center takes in injured, ill and orphaned birds of prey year-round, providing veterinary care and rehabilitation in an effort to return raptors to the wild. If you find an injured raptor, please call our Injured Raptor Line: 307.200.6019.

When can we go?
Year-round, call for tour times
Live raptors just a few feet away is an exciting experience students never forget! Three live raptors are brought to each of our classroom visits along with a learning touch table of raptor related objects. These classroom visits are designed to allow students to experience an up-close learning adventure that is tailored to their age, understanding, and current learning objectives. Discussion topics may include traits of raptors, adaptations of diurnal and nocturnal raptors, fables and stories about raptors, local birds of prey, predator and prey relationships in a food chain, conservation trends relating to raptors, falconry, and much more..
