2017 was a very busy year for ARC. We had a record number of admits with 150. Also, in the month of June alone, we had 16 Educational Programs.
We have helped many raptors get a second chance at life and reached many people on the importance of birds of prey in our world.

World renowned Red Huber, photographer,
videographer, photojournalist for the Orlando Sentinel, came out to the center to do a featured article for Animal-Crazy.
The bird of prey he chose, was Jeep our new Educational Ambassador. This video is not only through Red’s eye, but Jeeps too! A Go Pro camera was attached to Jeep and off he went. Enjoy!
It looks like we are going to have another busy year with our Educational programs. Please book now to get the dates you are looking for.

A list of the raptors
that came through our facility.
The Avian Reconditioning Center is such a special place to be, and Saturday, November 4th was no different. On a beautiful autumn day, we had our 12th annual Fall Owl Fest. Making it so special, our Master Falconer Scott McCorkle worked with Jeep, a Bald Eagle on his first flight demonstration with so many people watching! Thank you to all our sponsors, vendors, musicians, USFW, FWC and St Johns who had so much wildlife information. Thank you to all our hard working volunteers who help make this happen. Many thanks to all who came out to learn about raptors and have fun at the same time!
