Alaska Raptor Center

1000 Raptor Way, Sitka, AK 99835

A pioneering wildlife project, the Alaska 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 rehabilitate and release into the wild all bird patients; however, a few never fully recover and remain housed at the center’s outdoor sanctuary. One of Sitka’s most popular attractions, visitors are welcome at the Alaska Raptor Center’s facility that includes an impressive flight training enclosure. Summer Hours: mid-May to mid-September: 8am – 4pm daily. Winter Hours: 10am – 3pm, closed weekends. Prices: $15 for adults, $6 for children.
