The center is a self educational center. You will get a printed booklet of the center in which you can read the key... More

This is a good place to encounter rescued raptors, very educational in a lovely setting. There is a wide assortment of birds, a self-guided tour and knowledgeable staff.

We were quite impressed with this center. There is lots of information on the birds, how they got there and why they can't be released back into the wild. The house at the end of the center has tons more information, which can be quite shocking how we have nearly ended many a birds species for feathers! It is a... More

Great way to spend a few hours viewing and interacting with birds you normally see from far away. The environment was well kept and the staff courteous and helpful.

We made a $100 donation to get a private tour for 8 that provided much more information and insight than we would have received with standard admission and felt that our donation went to a very good cause. We would definitely go back and donate again.

The Center is a haven for birds of prey, such as eagles, hawks, owls, ospreys, kites, and more, which are injured and cannot be released back into the wild. It is fantastic to see these marvelous birds up close and personal. In the afternoon, they often fly some of the birds in an open area to give the birds more... More

An excellent place for all ages 4 and up. Kids love to see the Eagles, Hawks and owls close up. The staff are volunteers, are knowledgeable and love to share their knowledge. I highly recommend a visit.

There a video to watch about how they care for the birds. The staff walks around and answers all your questions. They're very knowledegable. Overall, is a great... More
