It was outdoor cages for owls, eagles, turkeys, etc all previously injured or too socialized by humans or didn't learn survivor skills when young. Larger version of JD Randall museum in SF. Interesting to some birds up close that one normally doesn't see. Educational facility so chalk up the $7 fee as donation. Not that large of a facility, self... More

I've been to the Raptor Center several times and have enjoyed each visit thoroughly. The volunteers/employees are knowledgable, and provide interesting stories about how birds ended up at the center. They are doing a great service for birds of prey while providing an excellent education to the public. Overall a wonderful experience and a great place to take visiting guests.

The Raptor Center is very well maintained. The stories of the animals make the animals very personal and touching. Kudos to this rehab center; some of these birds have been there years and look completely at home.

A great place to visit with out-of-town guests and the fees help to sustain the mission of the center.

Staff is very friendly and welcoming. I love to take pictures, and you can do that here, but it is a little difficult through the fencing, but the fencing has to be there to protect the birds and to protect the visitors. The birds are beautiful. Donations are for a very good cause, and glad to have someone looking out... More

We stop at the raptor center every time we're in the area. I love it! You can get pretty close to most of the birds and their stories are quite fascinating. It's an extra special treat if you can be there during feeding time. We love to take all of our out of town visitors there.

A small, but well-tended bird rehabilitation and education center. One can view the birds quite close up. The trails and surroundings are easy to navigate, fun for children and often, quite solitary.

It is a bit out of the way, but of course wild animals should be in the wild. Everyone in our party enjoyed different aspects of our experience. It's kid friendly, but not cheesy, so the adults had a good time, too. It's across the way from a lovely walking trail in the woods with very easy terrain. We enjoyed... More

We completely enjoyed touring the raptor center! The two employees we spoke to today (04/05/14) were friendly, informative and very helpful. The tour is self-guided, which we loved, since you can go at your own pace. The enclosures were very well with the information regarding each of the raptors, how they were acquired and why they cannot be released. There... More

This place is incredible.I looked forward to their annual Open House, as I could then bring my three children for no charge. It's totally worth the entrance fee if you have it, but I was on a very tight budget when my kids were small, and just couldn't swing it. The birds, the atmosphere, the cages, the setting, the dedication--... More
