Canadian Raptor Conservancy

The Canadian Raptor Conservancy is one of the largest captive breeding projects in the world. With over 200 captive-bred birds in their care, the Conservancy regularly breeds over 15 different species each year. Many are endangered species and some of their offspring are sent back into the wild through organized release projects around the world. All of the birds used for demonstrations are captive-bred.

The Niagara Glen has become a renowned outdoor destination for hikers, cyclists, conservationists, boulderers and anyone seeking an opportunity to connect with nature. In recognition of its growing popularity as a destination for nature enthusiasts, the new Niagara Glen Nature Centre re-opened in 2017, enhanced with new programming options, with a focus on school programs, outdoor programming and guided tours of the Glen.
