Remarkable Raptors in High Park with Mountsberg Raptor Centre Event Details

Meet the Toronto Raptors in High Park. No, not the basketball team, but rather the hawks, eagles and falcons that call the city home. Our friends from the Mountsberg Raptor Centre will be bringing their raptors to the Nature Centre! You’ll get to meet the raptors in person. Then, we will head out for a nature hike to learn what the raptors are up to in High Park and how they survive in the big city.

You can choose to register for one of three different sessions:

  • Session 1: 1-2:30PM
  • Session 2: 2-3:30PM (Note: This session is ideal for families)
  • Session 3: 3-4:30PM

Price: $20

Mountsberg Raptor Centre

The Mountsberg Raptor Centre, located within Mountsberg Conservation Area, is an education facility that houses both Ontario native and non-native birds of prey. The centre strives to cultivate respect for birds of prey both in captivity and in the wild, to teach visitors about the biology of these birds, and to educate about human impacts on wildlife and positive actions guests can take in their lives to benefit animals and the environment.

A number of changes were made to the travel network within High Park as part of the High Park Movement Strategy that might influence your decision to drive to High Park. In case you’re driving we strongly recommend you to park your car at the public parking lot near Grenadier Cafe.

We continue to recommend using the TTC or biking as the best way to get to High Park and the Nature Centre. The Nature Centre is situated just a 5-minute walk from the High Park Subway Station. In case you were biking, there are bike racks available in front of the Nature Centre.

Please note, High Park is closed to cars on the weekends. If your event is on a weekend, you will need to park outside the park and walk in, or take transit.
