JRC in the News
The Juneau Raptor Center is a volunteer, non-profit organization that has served the community of Juneau since 1987. The Center has a dual mission:
- We provide treatment and rehabilitation for injured wild birds from all over Southeast Alaska — typically more than 200 birds per year. To learn more, visit our Rehabilitation page.
- We provide education about wildlife to the public. To learn more, visit our Education page (page under construction).
We are governed by a Board of Directors. The work of the organization is performed by members who serve on the following committees:
- The Organizational Development Committee is responsible for membership, the JRC Web site, the quarterly newsletter, and other projects.
- The Program Committee is responsible for bird rehabilitation and education.
- The Finance Committee is responsible for charting the financial course of the organization, including administering budgets developed by each of the other committees.
In addition, three special committees have been set up:
- The Tram Committee is responsible for the JRC operation at the Mt. Roberts Tramway.
- The Owl Monitoring Committee, of which the Juneau Raptor Center participated in, has completed its work. A final report has been issued: Distribution, Abundance, and Ecology of Forest Owls in Southeast Alaska, Final Report, April 2009, Michelle L. Kissling and Stephen B. Lewis. If you would like to see this report, please leave a message at (907) 586-8393, and we will call you back.
- The New Facility Steering Committee is responsible for planning the new center to be built on land near the Brotherhood Bridge.
