.. and I couldn't be happier. I'm a huge owl fan, and so I went on a trip to the Cascades Raptor Center hoping to meet Dmitri, the Eurasian Eagle Owl I've heard so much about. And I wasn't disappointed. I picked a crummy kind-of rainy spring day to go, and this meant I pretty much had the place to... More

These dedicated professionals have set up and maintained the most amazing park which is filled with wonderful birds you would never get to see or learn about. Be sure to leave a donation .

To be able to see the Raptors up close, to learn about them. This is known to others outside the state of Oregon, the United States. It is just so much to see and learn, that more than one visit is needed, and also one never gets tired of coming. In the woods, so the sounds of wild raptors can... More

The raptor center is in a beautiful setting. First step is to check in at the Visitor Center and pay a modest fee. The volunteer gave us a map and told us about the Center and welcomed us. As we stood in front of one of the enclosures she came outside to us and pointed out where the bird was... More

This was such a great experience to be so up close and just a few feet away from the most beautiful birds in the world! Bald eagles, raptors, owls...it is incredible. They do such a fantastic job in rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for these incredible creatures, GO and support them. They admission "fee" is a contribution...but so worth what they... More

What they do there is amazing. The wide array of bird residents was incredible. Ive never seen so many, especially not so close up.

The Cascades Raptor Center takes in raptor birds that have been injured. It treats and releases a majority of its birds. The birds that cannot be released--for example if they have a broken wing that cannot be healed to permit flight--they become permanent residents of the Center. At the Center, one can see eagles, hawks, owls, vultures, etc. of many... More

Many of the birds don't mind being at the front of the cages where you can stand about 12 inches away from these beautiful creatures. And despite us choosing a super cold day to visit, all four staff were eager to stop what they were doing in order to engage us with information and stories. Friendly birds. Friendly people.

The center held the attention of adults and children 3 yr. old through 14 yrs. old. Find out the times of special presentations and do not miss any. From and American Bald Eagle to a small owl the center has them all. Besides entertaining the center main focus is to safe the lives of injured raptors. We were so taken... More

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
