Located in the rambling chamise-covered hills in the Alpine area of East San Diego County, Sky Hunters is an important animal welfare institution for rehabilitating birds of prey and teaching about them. A non-profit organization, Sky Hunters is open to the public for on-site tours on Saturday and Sundays from 12 noon until 4 p.m. Visiting hours are by appointment. Sky Hunters not only educates the public about our local raptors, like eagles, hawks and owls, but also cares for those that are injured and also readies those that can be released back into the wild.
Sky Hunters is especially noted for its educational presentations for all ages at schools, campgrounds, interpretive centers, community programs, scout troops, churches and summer camps! Sky Hunters can be seen on the web at: http://skyhunters.org.
