Protecting Texas Raptors: Join Us This North Texas Giving Day



Inspired by the Blackland Prairie ecoregion, which once covered over 23,500 square miles of Texas, the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center is passionately committed to preserving and enhancing the rich biodiversity of our unique Texas landscape. Through dedicated efforts in rehabilitation, conservation, and education, we strive to protect this vital Texas ecosystem and the flora and fauna that call it home.



The generous contributions donated by our supporters is crucial to ensure the success of our mission. By donating through North Texas Giving Day, you directly help our facility rescue injured and orphaned birds of prey, preserve natural habitats, and educate our community about wildlife conservation. Join us in making a difference. Together, we can keep North Texas skies alive with the beauty of these incredible raptors. 


Thank you for supporting the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center on this special day of giving!

Mission

Blackland Prairie Raptor Center is dedicated to environmental preservation through public education and the conservation of birds of prey and wildlife in their natural habitat.

Needs

Each year, the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center treats up to 800 raptor patients, educates over 5,000 students, and works to restore its 66-acre campus to a tall-grass prairie. This North Texas Giving Day, our goal is to raise the funds needed to ensure our team has the resources to continue these vital efforts.

Looking ahead, we aim to expand our educational programs so we can reach more people, build a new rehabilitation clinic, create dedicated classroom spaces, and grow our park where visitors can meet ambassador birds and learn about the environment around them. We also plan to increase our social media presence to educate an even larger audience about raptor conservation and our mission. Your financial support is crucial to our success in achieving these goals.

Additionally, we are always seeking dedicated volunteers to help advance our mission. Discover how you can make a difference by volunteering at bpraptorcenter.org/new-volunteers.
