Great place for kids of any age. Make sure you go when they are having tours of the re-creation of a middle east birds of prey camp. I am coming back in the fall for the birds of prey exhibitions in the amphitheater.

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we took our son (26 and visiting from out-of-state) to experience the World Center for Birds of Prey. We were all impressed with their passion for the birds and their knowledge. In the indoor amphitheater, we got to see a staff member holding Gus, who I think was an Aplomado Falcon. It was a sight to... More

If you have children you want exposed to Naure, this is a must- see. If you have any interest at all in learning something new about those fierce... More

We have made several trips to this location and have yearly membership to support them. It's especially fun in the fall when they have their flight demonstrations. They bring a few individuals out and allow us to see some of the flight and other behaviors that are natural to the species. It is also interesting to see other live species... More

A little known place that is a world center for endangered birds of prey. The staff and volunteers make sure you enjoy your visit and are happy to answer questions. Who knew falconry was still practiced? Now I do! Fun for families

On the edge of town. This is a short visit with a guided tour and a self tour. It is an up close opportunity to see these incredible birds and learn about the history of humans and birds working together to hunt.

This is a wonderful place to visit and learn about all types of raptors. A rare chance at seeing California Condors. Great work being done to educate people about raptors and their importance.

People from all over the world visit here, and you should too! Closed on Mondays during the winter, and close at 4 pm, then during spring & summer, they close at 5. Check their website for hours to be current. They have four bird presentations a day where a handler brings out a raptor and talks about that bird. There... More
