The Juneau Raptor Center held its annual meeting/open house on Saturday, March 17, 2018, at the Mendenhall Mall.
We are very grateful to Anita Bauer, Mendenhall Mall, for allowing us to hold our event there.  We had a great turnout and we thank everyone that attended.  Many thanks also to Heritage Coffee Company for again donating coffee service for this event.  As always, we are very appreciative of all our volunteers that helped with setting up for this event, helping out during our open house and staying for cleanup.  All of your help made this event run very smoothly.
In addition, we thank the education bird handlers.  Present were Phil, gyrfalcon with handler Dale Cotton; Justice, adult bald eagle with handler Jaimie Rountree and Brutus, red tailed hawk with handler Kathy Maas.
We wish to thank the community for its continued support of the Juneau Raptor Center during these past years and continuing this support in the future.  We are not able to do this alone.  Your donations allow us to care for all the birds that come to us for help.  Everyone’s support is greatly appreciated.

We would like to thank everyone who came out and showed their support at the 35th Annual Juneau Public Market.

We hope you all enjoyed learning about our resident raptors and the natural history of their species, Justice the Bald Eagle, Phil the Gyrfalcon, and Brutus the Red-Tailed Hawk.

Special thanks to our bird handlers and volunteers who made this all possible: 
Bird Handlers: Jaimie Rountree and Kathy Maas
Volunteers: Pat Bock, Janet Capito, Joann Flora, Susan Wiswell, Kathleen Benner, Delana Wilks, and Maddie Kombrink.

Thank You to Taku Fisheries from the Juneau Raptor Center

Taku FishOn behalf of the Juneau Raptor Center (JRC), thank you so much to Taku Fisheries for donating fresh pink salmon in 2017 to us to feed our eagles for the coming year.

Taku Fisheries has generously donated these fish to us for many years and we are very grateful to them. This enables the eagles – releasable, rehabilitating and non-releasable – to have their natural food and because we get it fresh we are able to feed them the nutrition they need to be healthy birds.

A special thank you to Taku Fisheries’ Eric Norman and his staff for giving of their time and resources to JRC so we can accomplish this task! Their support is truly appreciated.

Dale Cotton, President
Juneau Raptor Center

We would like to thank everyone who came to see us at the 2016 Public Market
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.

Many Thanks to the Great Blue Heron Fund
The Juneau Raptor Center would like to thank the Juneau Community Foundation’s Great Blue Heron Fund for their generous grant of $1000! This grant was received just in time for the Christmas season and was used to help with the purchase of an order of quail, the primary diet of our hawks and falcon. While fish for our eagles is readily available thanks to the generosity of local businesses and fishermen with overflowing freezers, we need to import food 3 or 4 times a year for the other education birds and occasionally some of our avian patients. The frozen quail we feed the birds is one of our major expenses during the year. This grant helps us to continue providing excellent care for our education birds and allows us to devote more resources to injured bird care. I’m sure our birds would like to thank the Great Blue Heron fund personally but they have been too busy enjoying their dinner.
Thanks for making this a great holiday and New Year for the birds!

2015 Thanks to DIPAC from the Juneau Raptor Center
The Juneau Raptor Center (JRC) extends their sincere appreciation to all the great staff at DIPAC for their 2015 donation of jack salmon for our eagles. Their generous contribution of salmon provides food for both our resident education eagles and those eagles that come to us as a result of injuries.
Special thanks go to Brock Meredith, DIPAC Operations Manager, for his help in setting up this great support of the Juneau Raptor Center and our eagles. JRC volunteers Ron and Kathy Maas coordinate the pickup of the salmon, the preparation, packing and storage of the fish for the coming year. They have done this for many years and we are very grateful to them.
It is the actions and support of organizations like DIPAC and their wonderful staff that makes the work of the Juneau Raptor Center and our volunteers so rewarding. Their support is truly appreciated.

Juneau Public Market
The Juneau Raptor Center (JRC) would like to thank everyone who attended the 2013 JuneauPublic Market, November 29-December 1, 2013. We had a great turnout with lots of holiday shoppers who stopped by to learn about our work rehabilitating injured raptors and birds. We so much appreciate the volunteers that helped staff the booth, handled our education birds and especially the support we get from the public by becoming members, making donations or buying JRC merchandise. It is from support like yours that makes it possible for JRC to continue improving the lives of injured birds, maintaining educational programs for our Alaskan youth and fostering public awareness of bird safety and recovery. Thank you so much and Happy Holidays!!”

Thanks to the Juneau Community Foundation from the Juneau Raptor Center
 The Juneau Raptor Center (JRC) has been awarded another $1,000 grant from the Great Blue Heron Fund at the Juneau Community Foundation (JCF). We are honored to be the recipient of this grant. The Great Blue Heron Fund is one of many funds established through the JCF by generous donors who want to make a difference in Alaska.
JRC is very grateful for this grant award and the Juneau Community Foundation’s continuing support of our organization is greatly appreciated!
These monies will be used to offset the start up and operational costs of our new bird rehabilitation clinic soon coming online, including remodel work and plumbing and electrical configurations necessary to make the clinic more functional for us.
Thanks so much to the Juneau Community Foundation for supporting JRC’s efforts to improve the lives of injured birds, fostering education programs for our Alaskan youth and in helping bring community awareness to this very worthwhile cause.
Thanks to Taku Fisheries from the Juneau Raptor Center (2013)
Thanks again to the generosity of Taku Fisheries, the Juneau Raptor Center’s non-releasable and rehabilitating eagles will be eating freshly caught, bagged and frozen pink salmon for the coming year!
For many years Taku Fisheries has made this generous donation to us and we are very grateful to them. Bald eagles are primarily fish eaters and this food will enable them to receive the food Nature intended and meet their dietary requirements.
Thanks Eric and Bruce and all the great people working at Taku Fisheries! Your support makes it easier for us to do the work we love.
Thanks to DIPAC from the Juneau Raptor Center for 2013 fish donation
