Raptor Talks on Weekends!

This organization does some great work. They have fun and interactive talks on most weekends in the morning where you can get face-to-face with big birds!

I had a cup of hot chocolate and a very good burger sitting in front of their fireplace on a very cold day. Loved it. The restaurant is right by the Arkansas River in a beautiful setting too. Just a bit off the beaten path though for sure.

The Raptor Center was free to walk through. We saw around 20 birds - vultures, hawks, eagles, and owls. Good information cards about the birds and their personal stories. It was great to be able to see the birds so close up. There was a jar for donations-- please leave a donation! It is great that there are places like... More

I have always enjoyed this place even though over the years, it is the same stuff to see! I was a little upset when my husband and I were taking a stroll, a couple bicyclists sped past us going way too fast regardless of the "bikers, please walk your bike" signs. The restaurant is always pleasant as well

Our three year old daughter loved our visit!! There were no other people there so you could really take your time and view the birds quite close up. Really nice experience!

The Nature and Raptor Center includes an area on the Arkansas with the Coyote Grill as a place for lunch. The Raptor Center is nearby, follow the signs, and open for a tour. Rehabilitated birds, who are too injured to be released are housed there and if you're lucky, one of the staff will give you a tour and tell... More

The nature center offers many amenities including the interesting Raptor Center for a close up view of birds of prey, picnicking along the Arkansas River, dining at the restaurant along the river, participating in an educational program or accessing the extensive Greenway trail system.
