Adopt-A-Raptor at Callaway Gardens®

Dedicated to reconnecting man and nature, Callaway Gardens® offers the Adopt-A-Raptor program to provide support for the survival of our feathered friends.

Participants can sponsor the food, training, husbandry and housing of one of our resident raptors. Help support the care of Woodward the bald eagle, a crowd favorite at the Birds of Prey show whose beak deformity prevents him from eating properly in the wild. Also available for adoption are Winston, the eastern screech owl, Vinnie the black vulture and many more raptor ambassadors.

While our eleven resident raptors cannot survive in the wild, the Birds of Prey show at Callaway Gardens allow nature’s feathered ambassadors to provide priceless contributions by teaching visitors the importance of preserving our environment. The Birds of Prey show is available to guests three times each day (depending upon the weather) with the cost of regular garden admission. All of Callaway Gardens’ raptors are presented with the permission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

Adoption fees range from $50 to $500 per year. Each adoption package includes a certificate of adoption as well as a photo of the sponsored bird and its life history. Adoptions also make unique gifts and are an exciting way for a business or organization to make a difference.
