Nature’s Educators

Nature’s Educators was founded in 2008 and received 501c3 status in 2011. The organization started in Canon City, CO and moved to Aurora, CO in 2010. Nature’s Ed was established to bring animals into nature centers, classrooms, events, and more to teach about wildlife and help to create a healthy respect and understanding of all animals. The goal of Nature’s Educators is to create a public wildlife center and allow audiences to visit and have programs on-site while still doing the ever-popular outreach and events.

ARC - raptor rehabAvian Reconditioning Center


The Avian Reconditioning Center, or ARC, is a bird of prey rehabilitation and education facility located in Apopka, Florida, just outside of Orlando. ARC was started in 2001, and opened to the public in 2004. We are dedicated to raptor rehabilitation, education and research, thereby increasing public awareness, knowledge and appreciation of Florida’s magnificent raptors and the natural habitats in which they live.

We are open to the public on Saturdays (Closed in August). We invite you to stop by for a personal encounter with our resident eagles, hawks, falcons, kites and owls.

We also offer daytime and evening programs, onsite or offsite, for groups of all ages.
