Volunteer opportunities with the Cornell Raptor Program are open to currently enrolled undergraduate students at Cornell University. Volunteer training is primarily done during the fall semester with students participating throughout the academic year as their schedules allow.

Saturday Workdays are scheduled for most Saturday mornings throughout the semester from 9:00 a.m. until noon. These workdays involve feeding resident birds, cleaning aviaries and facilities, and routine bird husbandry.

For those that have more time to devote to the program, more opportunities exist.  This includes opportunities to work with individual resident birds in training, hand feeding, and also presenting birds at our public education programs. 

If you are interested in learning more about the program and opportunities to participate plan to attend our introductory meeting held every fall semester or contact Dr. Heather Huson (
