Raptor House of Yakima is a rehabilitation center where injured, sick, and orphaned birds of prey are brought for medical attention. The birds receive care from local veterinarians who donate their services and medication to the raptors and the Raptor House Rehabilitation Center. The birds are then put in designated flight pens for its species for exercise and recuperation. Once ready for release, they are released in the same location found or a designated location from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Raptor House Rehabilitation Centers mission is to preserve the earth's biological diversity and to secure the future of bird species in their natural environments. We work to fulfill that mission through education and raptor rehabilitation. Recently they recorded a release of two Swainson’s Hawks after rehabilitation.
This lodge is one of the friendliest places I know. Everyone seems to genuinely enjoy working there and doing whatever they can to assist the guests.
