The Glen Helen Raptor Center is part of the Glen Helen Association, a non-profit organization. The Raptor Center operates two core programs; education of raptors and their role in Ohio ecosystems, and rehabilitation of injured raptors with the goal of release back to the wild.  

 

 

The Raptor Center's mission is to improve the welfare of raptors across Ohio through educating the public about birds of prey, wildlife, and conservation issues, and through the rehabilitation of injured raptors across Southwestern Ohio.  

 

The Raptor Center offers a wide variety of educational programs, and operates the Miami Valley's only raptor rehabilitation clinic admitting around 200 sick or injured birds of prey yearly.  Through its education and rehabilitation efforts, the Center reaches thousands of people giving them a greater understanding, appreciation, and concern for raptors and other wildlife.

Funding for the Raptor Center is provided through visitor donations, raptor sponsorships, and program fees.  Permits are held through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Ohio Division of Wildlife authorizing the activities of the Center.
