Strollers are allowed on the Raptor Trail, the bigger the wheels the better.
Our birds are ready for their close ups and are accustomed to flash photography.
Service animals are allowed on the Raptor Trail but cannot attend programs where birds will be freely flying. This is to ensure the safety of the animal, the visitors, the birds and the staff. Service animals must be kept on a leash or in direct control of their human at all times. Birds see dogs as predators and can become agitated or frightened by them. Please move on to the next enclosure if you notice this occurring. Comfort animals are not allowed on the Raptor Trail.
