Skeeter Meyers is a life long Treasure Valley resident.  Skeeter reached out to SRSI because of a life long adoration of birds and critters big and small. She is excited to assist SRSI's mission helping raptors both large and small through rehabilitation and education, and conservation of raptor habitat in the wild areas in Idaho.

Our Facilities

We have been busy at work on our flight rehabilitation chambers. You can see some of our progress in the pictures below. To date we have built 6 chambers which are 12'x24'.  We are hard at work on additional chambers. Best of all, we are preparing a 60'x120' flight chamber for eagles. It will be the first of several that will be approved for rehablitating golden eagles and bald eagles.

Thank you to the volunteers and workers who have made this happen! We wouldn't have gotten this far without your kindness and goodwill!
