12 year old grandson visited with his aunt...hard to keep him interested. We decided to go to the Raptor center. Great choice...spent 90 minutes viewing all the birds and reading the information signs along the paths. He was really interested, especially the birds of prey....several large hawks and many owls. His aunt, a school teacher would have stayed all day,... More

This is a noble place to see and be. Yes, I didn't enough about the access and food, but I noticed one of the greatest sanctuaries for birds that I've ever seen. Please visit this amazing and wonderful place where they are consumed with helping the beauty of our birds. Yup, even Eagles, Hawks and little ones.

Two seniors, two adults and two children thoroughly enjoyed their visit here. Each bird is clearly identified and it's story is told. The enclosures are natural and it is easy to view the birds set in a wooded setting. The tour is self-guided. You are given a card map to follow and even without it the path is easy. Everyone...

We stopped here for a brief few hours to break up our drive from the Crater Lake area to Portland. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our first visit to Oregon and we would highly recommend visiting the center if you are near the area or have an interest in birds of prey. We were lucky... More

This place is worth an hour or two if you are in the area. As it is currently structured, you visit at your convenience and go on a self-guided tour. There are good signs about the bird species, as well as the individual birds and how they came to be at the center. Seeing the volunteers interact with the birds... More

Be sure to get there in time to see and hear the demonstration and information session. We learned so much. The center is wonderfully arranged and beautifully maintained. There's always a volunteer or employee around to answer any questions. A great place to visit.

They had a good collection of Raptor on display. The educational talk was very informative even if the Owl flew away for a few minutes. They do a very good job of describing the bird and telling you a story of why each of the birds is in the facility. The admission cost was reasonable for what they presented. It... More
