Hoo's Woods Raptor Center

We help birds of prey through education, rehabilitation and conservation  

P.O. Box 21, Milton WI 53563 

Programs and Events Temporatily Suspended Due to Covid 19


Due to the evolving Covid 19 virus situation,  our Hoo's Woods programs and events have been  suspended until May  26th. Book now for Fall now and beat the rush! Get your students and patrons nose to beak with the raptors.

Hoo's Woods  will continue to be a regional resource for injured, ill, and orphaned raptors. We are committed to the patients currently in care and we will continue to care for injured birds of prey during this period of social distancing as staffing allows. We encourage people who find an injured raptor to please us at 608-883-2795. 

Our center has been negatively impacted by the current Covid-19 Virus situation as 60% of our funding is from our public  education programs. We need your help to continue the dedicated work of  caring for our resident birds as well as the rehabilitation of injured raptors. We understand things are tough for everyone, but if you are looking to provide a donation we appreciate anything that can be given. We receive no state or federal funding or disaster relief. Your contribution will make an impact no matter the amount. Rest assured all birds at the center remain our top priority and we are taking all necessary precautions at this time. 

We encourage you to take a moment in these uncertain and challenging times to look up and be inspired by the birds around you, these global connectors. 

Your tax deductible donation can be sent via PayPal or

PO Box 21 Milton WI 53563. 

Thank you and be safe,
