Looking for an incredible venue for a Hatch Day Party… sometimes referred to as a Birthday Party?

We have what you are looking for… Brockdale Park at Blackland Prairie Raptor Center. Enjoy our beautiful scenery: natural setting with Lavon Lake as our backdrop and a remnant prairie considered an endangered ecosystem with plants unique to this habitat

Named after the tallgrass prairie that once covered more than 23,500 square miles of Texas from the Red River to San Antonio, Blackland Prairie Raptor Center’s mission is to promote and enhance populations of raptors through rehabilitation, conservation, and education initiatives.

Conservation & Restoration

Our Center is committed to restoring our 66-acre campus back to Blackland Prairie in an effort to support local and migratory raptors and all other wildlife.


The Blackland Prairie Raptor Center is the only facility in North Texas dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of sick and injured birds of prey.

Education & Training

Through education initiatives, our Center is creating tomorrow’s ambassadors by inspiring people of all ages and walks of life to connect with and advocate for the natural world.
