Home of Super Flight 

The IRC would like to thank everyone who donated so generously toward making IRC's 400 ft. long Super Flight a reality! 

The Illinois Raptor Center is the largest facility of its kind in Illinois.  And Super Flight is the largest flight in the U.S.

Donations are still needed. You can donate toward raptor perches, substrate, video monitoring cameras, security locks, and water outlets.  And of course you can donate for food and medical care.
