Raptor Recovery Nebraska, Inc.

Raptor Recovery Nebraska is a team of hardworking volunteers who put in time and effort to rescue and rehabilitate injured and sick eagels, hawks, owls, falcons, and other raptors. Members receive a subscription to the biannual newsletter Free Flight, which outlines the activities of the organization and its members. The Rehabilitation Facility near Elmwood is open to tours by appointment, for members only. Membership contributions are crucial for the maintenance and rehabilitation of the raptors under RRN's care. The West Nile Virus hit Nebraska's raptor population and streched RRN's resources very thin. All donations are tax-deductible.
