Related to this are release activities and the housing and training of a small number of non-releasable birds that become part of our educational programs.  Read more

Public Lectures

From time to time The Bird Rescue Center sponsors lectures on bird-related topics. For example, our Fall lecture series The Wild Birds of Northern California is open to the public, and is also a prerequisite for those interested in training for our Raptor Handling Program.

Community Events

Throughout the year, look for Bird Rescue Center volunteers and our Raptor Ambassadors at many local events, from farmers markets to the annual Tolay Fall Festival.
