A Few Things to Know When You Visit

The Raptor Trust is located at 1390 White Bridge Road, Millington, NJ. The Raptor Trust is home to approximately 50 resident disabled birds housed in large outdoor aviaries that can be viewed by walking along the trails.

  • Please stay on the gravel paths and in the public areas.
  • The rehabilitation areas are off limits to the public. Our patients are wild animals and we need to be sensitive and mindful of their needs for a quick recovery and return to the wild.
  • We ask that you maintain a ratio of no more than five children to one adult. Children must remain with their parents/teachers.
  • Please walk quietly and respectfully through our aviary trail.
  • We do not allow dogs onsite or in the parking area. No animal should be left unattended in vehicles parked in our lot.
  • Bathrooms are located off the Education Center back deck and open to TRT visitors.
