Visited with a 5 year old and took free 30 minute tour. You will see a variety of remakrable birds, all of them receiving medical care from the Center. Others on the tour included adults and teenagers. We all were fascinated. The tour was excellent. This place does great work with injured birds of prey. You'll learn a LOT. Donation... More

Visited with my 17 year old who really loves birds of prey. Volunteers are very knowledgable and you get to see these amazing raptors close up! This organization is dedicated to education and conservation of these majestic creatures! Allow approximately 45 minutes to tour.

Owls, eagles, hawks, vultures, falcons…..The Raptor Center cares for injured raptors of all kinds, and twice a year they have a public event (see the website for locations and dates) where rehabilitated birds are released. Some birds however cannot be sent back to the wild; these are the ones you can visit at the Raptor Center. It is really a... More

My husband and I just visited The Raptor Center with our (3) young grandchildren. It was extremely interesting and educational for all of us (age 3 to age 66). What a unique opportunity to learn about these majestic creatures (via close encounter). We look forward to many more visits and to supporting the great work of the trainers and volunteers... More

They ask for a donation (so no fixed cost for the visit). Seems the tours are done by volunteers who are extremely knowledgeable. They have several bald eagles (injured and either being treated or unable to survive in the wild). We walked outside to see many other raptors they have in cages - *caution* the outside part can be a... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon and in addiction to a tour paid $8 per person for one of the volunteers to take out 3 birds for some education and up close views. The volunteer was very knowledgable about the center and birds. The session was supposed to be 45 minutes but due to everyone's interest and questions lasted just... More

Brought the kids here to check out the local bird life. It was great to see the birds up close. Not a lot to do for littler children.

The staff at the Raptor Center are very helpful and friendly. The work they do fixing all the raptors brought into the center is amazing. Many of the staff are volunteers yet they take the time to educate all who come to see the center. Well worth a visit!
