My kids and I went to explore here. Nice trails and the staff at the bookstore was very informative about the local birds. The girls enjoyed seeing all the butterflies. The Raptor center was kind of boring but it is interesting to see large birds of prey up close. Overall, not bad for a $4 entrance fee.

I loved the 30-minute educational program (11:30am Saturdays and Sundays). There is a restaurant there right on the Arkansas river - beautiful!

This is a no frills place. No staff and no bathroom, either, when we went. So be prepared. Bring cash, to pay the honor system entrance fee of $3. It's a bit run down, but the birds are quite impressive. Bald eagles, hawks, falcons and owls, up close and personal. Some have notes about how they came to live there,... More

Slow down and enjoy nature at the center. Places to sit and watch the fauna and flora. The area is filled with all types of plants, trees, flowers, and birds, squirrels etc. The restaurant has good food, nothing fancy but good. You can sit on the patio and watch the river roll by.

This is a rehab center for injured birds of prey and give you the opportunity to see a variety of birds up close. They do a number of programs and several releases each year.

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.
