Great place to go with kids-- so many birds to see up close. The staff is well-educated and excited to share their knowledge. Some hands-on opportunities too.

My friends I love this center. I was recommended by several friends to come and visit this location. So I decided to put it on the test. Sure it was small but it was worth the price to see these amazing animals that live on our fascinating earth. I would recommend that you should bring kids because it is a... More

Both small and older kids enjoyed the facilities very much. There are a dozen or more eagles, raptors, owls, etc, in both outdoor and indoor facilities. The visitor's center also had things the younger kids enjoyed. My parents went on a tour of the falconry archives and enjoyed that. It is inexpensive. A nice place to stop for a short... More

We visited in the winter and still had a great time and learned a ton. Would love to visit again in the fall when they do an outdoor live presentation. The small indoor live bird presentation was worth the whole stop. Great history, knowledgable staff, and beautiful birds. Worth a visit for any animal or history lovers. The archive tour... More

We joined up on the first visit and have gone back a number of times during the last year. The live flying programs are great in that you can get up close with the birds for some very cool pictures. The staff is very well informed and friendly.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this facility. We were able to see the 3 PM show. It is a place you need see more than once to let all the information sink in. We will definitely revisit on our next trip to Boise.

The Birds of Prey are really cool and the location is amazing up in the hills outside Boise, however they should have more more birds and more interaction. They have a daily show at 3pm which is pretty cool but it would be nice to have some falconers on hand to show their skills and increase the public's interest in... More
