A pioneering wildlife project, the Raptor Center has for years proven that dedicated volunteer effort and innovative veterinary medicine can make a life-or-death difference on Alaska’s raptors (birds of prey). The center’s goal is to release into the wild all rehabilitated birds; however, a few never recover flight and remain housed at the center’s outdoor display. One of Sitka’s popular attractions, visitors are welcome at the Raptor Center’s expanded facility and the center’s latest flight barn addition. Summer Hours: mid-May to mid-September: 8am – 4pm daily. Winter Hours: 10am – 3pm daily, closed weekends. Prices: $13 for adults, $6 for children.
