EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

The Sitka program was not working with raptors as originally presented, but changes made in the program were good. I thoroughly enjoyed working at the science center; we got to release salmon into the wild. The science center presentations were very good. We were welcomed by the volunteers at the college and I very much enjoyed being part of the great work they are doing. The city of Sitka is wonderful.!

This program should not include Raptor Center in its title. Sitka is a fine place to be and to do service work at the Sitka Fine Arts Camp and the Sitka Science Center. Raptors were not included. The educational components and all staff were first rate!

If you select this program thinking you will "lend a hand at the Raptor Center" you will be disappointed. We spent about 3 hours at the center with our hands in our pocket. There were no projects for us...we were tourists. Very disappointing and false advertising. Shame on you RoadScholar. Jean Wood

Road Scholar's response:
We are very sorry that the amount of time spent at the Raptor Center was less than what we had planned. Unfortunately, events beyond our control were the cause of the diminished time at the Raptor Center. Although we rescheduled other activities in its place, we certainly understand the disappointment this caused. Because of the uncertainty with scheduling visits to the Raptor Center, Road Scholar will not be offering this service program in the future.
