Rotary was pleased to welcome Executive Director, Cindy Alverson, of Raptor, Inc. to a recent meeting of the Cincinnati Eastside Rotary. Raptor is a local non-profit serving the greater Cincinnati area, rehabilitating injured birds of prey and providing educational programs to the public about raptors and their contribution to the ecosystem. Located on an 8 acre property adjacent to the Cincinnati Nature Center off of Barg Salt Run Rd., Raptor facilities consist of an education and rehabilitation center and multiple flight enclosures.

Specially trained volunteers perform duties including: coordination and pickup of injured raptors, rehabilitation and release of injured raptors, care and feeding of educational ambassadors, delivering educational programs, and maintenance and enhancement of rehab facilities.

Raptor opens its doors to the public on the last Sunday of each month (March-November) from 1pm to 4pm. During these times educators are available to welcome guests, lead tours, conduct educational programs share biological artifacts, and answer questions. Visitors may choose to participate in special activity stations, shop for merchandise, and enjoy some treats! The events are FUN and FREE!

Private tours and educational programs can be scheduled by appointment. For more information, including the opportunity to volunteer or donate, please visit RaptorInc.org.

About Our Club

The Rotary Club of Cincinnati-Eastside was formed April 5, 2013 and it's 40 members enjoy fellowship, service and education each Wednesday at a luncheon meeting at Ivy Hills Country Club.  Prospective members are always welcome and each week more people are joining the "ground floor" of this new and vibrant Club.

The members represent a wide range of business, non-profit and government leaders.
