About RCA

We are a 501c3 non-profit that is a blend of 2 organizations; the old Raptor Recovery Nebraska, and Nature's Educators, an education organization in Colorado. After a 7-year stint under a local nature center, we decided to go a different direction and returned to our independent status.


With more than 45 years of experience under Raptor Recovery Nebraska, over 14,000 raptors have been admitted to our facilities. RNN has a reputation as one of the top 10 raptor rehabilitation organizations in the nation.


Although RCA's primary mission is rehabilitation, we maintain several permanent residents for educational programs. All of our program presenters are volunteers, so scheduling a program is limited to their availability.
