Habitat Restoration at the World Center for Birds of Prey

The World Center for Birds of Prey is open to visitors who want to learn more about our global conservation efforts and to get nose to beak with many amazing raptors. Habitat restoration is key to conservation success. Situated on a hill south of Boise, Idaho, this site has been historically a robust sagebrush steppe habitat which supports a diverse range of species. We invite you to help us continue to improve the habitat throughout our 580 acre site while getting your team outdoors to have some fun!

Restoration efforts across the campus include planting and maintaining native grasses, shrubs, and forbs while removing invasive plants that outcompete and increase the future risk of large scale fires. Following NFPA's Firewise USA guidelines, this helps protect both native species, visitors, and our breeding facilities for critically endangered birds of prey.
