Hawk Creek is thrilled to announce that the Center will be able to move forward with its Raptor Park construction at its new facility on Mill Rd.! This project is funded in part through a generous grant from the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.  Raptor Park will provide homes for non-releasable owls, hawks, vultures and falcons at the Center’s new facility. Many of these birds of prey were injured in the wild through encounters with humans, such as Ivy the Eastern Screech Owl who was hit by a car, sustained a broken wing and can no longer fly.  Ivy is now a wonderful ambassador for her species and is also a foster mother for orphaned screech owls.

Raptor Park will not only provide homes for one of the largest bird of prey collections in the North East, it will also provide an unparalleled educational opportunity for people to learn about raptors. Through the public visiting during tours and open house events and our volunteer and internship programs, more people than ever will have the opportunity to observe and learn about raptors in an interactive and engaging way. Through these experiences the Center’s animal ambassadors inspire our leaders of tomorrow to be better stewards of the planet.  This facility will also allow for the expansion of the Center’s propagation programs for rare and endangered species.
