Teton Raptor Center
The Teton Raptor Center is a nationally recognized raptor rehabilitation program located in Jackson, Wyoming. TKWA was hired by the Center to prepare a master plan for the site, located on a 26-acre historic ranch property. The project goal was to help the Center create a highly functional and memorable place that uniquely tells the story of conservation through cultural and natural history interpretation.
Key project components include repurposing the existing historic Hardeman Barn into a visitor/conference center and renovating the historic Horse Barn to create administrative research space currently housed offsite. Additional project components include design for a new ‘Net-zero’ administrative office, two new ‘Net-zero’ residential units for intern/staff housing, a new flight chamber, gatehouse, and renovation/expansion of existing rehabilitation MEWS. A variety of outdoor spaces for public gathering and educational classes were also developed.
Site planning and program development was significantly impacted by existing conservation easements from the Jackson Hole Land Trust and Teton County Land Development regulations.
