Raptor Fest @ Home

Adopt a raptor now!

Watch the event February 6, 2021, 10 a.m. on Facebook

Each February, hundreds of nature lovers, birders, photographers, and Boyd Hill neighbors celebrate Raptor Fest in support of BHNP’s Birds of Prey program.

This year, we invite you all to continue the tradition, but in a little different way. Adopt a raptor between now and January 31. You or your business will get publicity and other benefits (see below) as a thank you for supporting this time honored program that means so much to the St. Petersburg community.

Please fill out the form below with payment corresponding to the adoption level you choose. 

When you click "pay," you will be taken to a secure page where you can enter your credit card information. We will contact you via email for all needed information, such as your business photo or logo, T-shirt size, or other details that correspond to your adoption level. Thank you for supporting Raptor Fest @ Home!

If you prefer, you can print out an adoption form and return it to the Preserve with cash or a check.
