Looking for a fun (and free) activity for the family? The Raptor Center is one of Davis' little hidden treasures.

The center cares for injured raptors, or birds of prey, including eagles, hawks, vultures and owls, rehabilitating and releasing them whenever possible. Birds that cannot be released remain to take part in the center's education program. Visitors are welcome to come for a self-guided tour of bird cages and one-room educational museum packed with interesting activities like identifying bones pulled from owl pellets.

Directions: Take the UC Davis exit from Interstate 80 and turn south on Old Davis Road. Cross the railroad tracks and continue until just before the Putah Creek bridge. Turn left onto the paved levee road. Follow it for two-tenths of a mile and keep on the pavement as the road veers left, taking you down off the levee. Then make a quick right turn into the free parking area.

Mon-Fri 9 am - 4 pm
Sat 9 am - 12 pm
(Open hours depend on volunteers)
