What a wonderful place. They are a non-profit place that does so much good for these birds that would otherwise not have survived in the wild. And also rehabilitate and set free those that are able. Everyone their is so dedicated to the cause. It was worth every penny!

A well run rescue facility for raptors and corvids. Nice introduction to Oregon raptor species and individual animals. On appointment excellent education programmes. The center runs entirely on donations and entrance fees, so please support it when you visit.

I went here with my son on a 3rd grade class trip. Luckily we had a guide who answered all of our questions and introduced us to a few Falcons before we walked around the cages and fell in love with the owls. A bird sanctuary isn't for everyone and this one is not fancy. It also is on some... More

The CRC is a great spot for kids and adults alike. You can get up close to some amazing birds and learn a lot. It is outdoors and pleasant, set in the trees against a hillside. It only takes about an hour to see all the birds. In addition to the resident raptors, the center serves as a 24/7 hospital... More

The birds are fantastic. You can get right next to their very large homes. The people who work or volunteer are very friendly and knowledgeable. Whether adults or kids attend, nobody will get bored. If you are in the area, this is a must see!

I visited the Cascades Raptor Center with a large extended family, ages 13 to 81. We received a very interesting explanation about the center and the raptors they have there, and then we walked around, observing and reading about all the different birds. My mother was able to get around part of the area walking with a cane. I recommend... More

Again, if you want to learn about birds of almost any type or are just a part-time bird watcher, you must stop here if you're in Eugene for even one night. Well off the beaten path, but within close driving, or biking range of the University of Oregon, there are not just Raptors here, but also many different birds, including... More

Had heard you did not see much, that is not true. We saw all kinds of birds that had been rehabbed but could not be released to the wild. Got to hear a talk on peregrine falcons, the trainer had one with her. Really good work. I highly recommend you go.

We visited the CRC as a way to pass the time, but turned out to be so memorable. We arrived just in time for their daily trainer presentation. It was amazing to see and hear how well the raptors are treated and to learn about these beautiful creatures. The talk was fairly brief but very informative and interesting. Demetry, the... More

Kids and adults will enjoy the exhibits of these big birds. The center is located in the hills and is in a lovely forested spot. There are volunteers for questions and a lot of information is on each cage. Monthly, they have a "family day" with a craft for the kids. There is usually a volunteer walking out with one... More
