Thank you for your interest in Blackland Prairie Raptor Center.
BPRC has many opportunities throughout the facility. We have a quarterly orientation to introduce you to BPRC and options available. There is a $15 application fee which covers a background check and volunteer t-shirt. Minimum age is 16 (with an adult present) and 18 as an individual.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you an application that you would bring with you to the orientation.
Our opportunities include:
Education – cleaning and repairing mews (raptor cages), feeding, learning to work with our education ambassador raptors (if appropriate). Additionally, if you like talking to people, we do events and programs around north Texas introducing raptors from this area.
Rehabilitation – working with injured, sick and orphaned birds of prey. This includes handling and treating patients throughout the rehabilitation process.
Prairie/park maintenance – our public park area is always in need of repair, restoration and improvement.
Construction – we are constantly building new flight cages or other facilities.
Thank you for your interest in BPRC as a volunteer and we work to make your time a learning experience and enjoyable.
