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 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.

This is a wonderful place for injured Birds of Prey to live. They take care of the birds who otherwise would die in the wild from disease or broken wings.

We visit the center on every trip--great in all seasons, especially to get of the heat and into the nice trees and enjoy nature (watch out for poisonous snakes though)

Well, the work that Diane and staff do on a daily basis caring for these birds is amazing. They are such caring people and these wounded birds are lucky to have this place. If more people knew what time and effort was put into the Center maybe more donations would come pouring in. The Nature Center down below the Raptor... More
