Green Chimneys maintains nearly 50 birds of prey at the Paul C. Kupchok Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, which provides rescue, rehabilitation and continued care for injured, orphaned and distressed wildlife, primarily birds of prey.
The Wildlife Center features an education center, animal triage care area, large display and flight cages, woodland paths and naturalistic habitats. Our wildlife residents include local and rare breeds – Andean condor; Griffon vulture; numerous hawks, falcons, and owls; several crows; and permanently disabled bald and golden eagles.
Licensed by the Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Wildlife Center rescues and cares for diverse species of:
Our goal is to release as many animals as possible back into the wild. Those that can be rehabilitated will be returned to nature; those with permanent disabilities are sheltered here, where they provide a special learning experience for the children – and staff – at Green Chimneys.
We invite you to visit and learn
The Wildlife Center is open to the public on weekends and holidays from 10am -3pm. But remember, this is the animals' home so please respect their space and move slowly and quietly.
Be sure to attend our annual Birds of Prey Day in June when falconers from across the region join together to display their birds, provide exciting demos, and celebrate these magnificent creatures!
