We had a great crew of volunteers and are very happy with the event.  Thanks to our volunteer crew: Pat Bock, Janet Capito, Jaimie Rountree, Kathy Maas, Sandy Harbanuk, Suzanne Peschier, Liz Allen, Alexia Kiefer, Bill Church, Mary Willson, Francine Troisfontaine,  Tammy Hesseltine, Jean Hunt, Susan Wiswell, Kirsten Swanson, and Leandra Lewis. We would also like to thank local photographer and bird enthusiast Tamara Roberts for donating her time and talents to photographing our resident birds.

We would like to congratulate Amber Rounds-McPherson from Thunder Mountain High School for winning the 2015 Juneau Raptor Center Logo Contest!imageLogo-Winner

This contest was only for our local high school students grades 9-12. It was an extremely difficult decision to make as we had several talented students partake in this event.
Thanks to everyone who participated and congrats Amber!
