Eagle Valley Raptor Center is a great destination, not just for those who love Birds of Prey, but for anybody wanting to experience something new and unique! Ken is not only knowledgeable about these beautiful birds, but he loves them! The experience is not only educational but enjoyable. I have now been to EVRC twice. Once as a group tour... More

I have experienced EVRC both at the facility tour in Cheney and at school programs. Ken is passionate and an expert on these amazing eagles , owls and hawks. The school program keeps kids attention and teaches them the importance of wildlife to our environment. Donations help keep the rehabilitation going for these amazing eagles and owls.

This is not a field trip I would recommend for younger chidren. The two older children in our group loved the two hour presentation. Our tour was given by Ken. After the tour he personally requested that we put an honest rating on Trip Advisor. We left a sizable donation for our small ground as well. The facility is spectacular,... More

I have visited the Eagle Valley Raptor Center and enjoyed it very much and learned alot about birds that I didn't know. Ken not only rescues hurt Raptors, but rehabilitates them and returns them to the wild if they are releasable. If they are not he either keeps them and uses them to educate the public or he looks for... More

I've been to EVRC twice now and follow their great efforts on Facebook. The good work that is performed there is awe inspiring! To see some of these raptors up close and personal is a chance in a lifetime for most people. Ken Lockwood and his volunteers do an amazing job of being hospitable and make you feel welcomed. Great... More

If you are in Kansas, you owe it to yourself to make the trip to Eagle Valley Raptor Center. It is an experience you and your children will never forget. Ken's love for the birds is obvious and infectious. Ken takes great care to engage everyone there in a one on one type of experience and when you leave you... More

I have had multiple experiences with Eagle Valley Raptor Center. The Peregrin Falcon program he does is fantastic, I saw it at the Botanica, but he will go to schools as well. A perfect program for the Air Capital, as it shows how airplanes are designed after this beautiful incredibly fast and aerodynamic raptor. I recommend families with older kids... More

Learned a lot about raptors and getting my picture taken next to a Bald Eagle was priceless! Would be a great place for students to visit on a school field trip

This is a unique place with one of the most fervent animal lovers in the world. Rescue is their passion and you will see birds being rescued if they have not been returned to the wild.
