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.

Very nicely done exhibit and the stories of the birds arrival very interesting to read. They talk they gave was very informative and yes the owl flew away on us too, just like someone else reported. They brought someone else in to keep talking while the other girl got the owl out of the tree. Worth the visit and the... More

Went later in the afternoon and they were feeding several birds their mice. Got to get up close to a turkey vulture, red tailed hawk and a peregrine falcon. Fascinating!

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

Last month, I, my wife, daughter and 8 yr old granddaughter visited the Center. My granddaughter played veterinarian. She had to find the injured stuffed animal, determine what was wrong, give it the proper medical treatment, and nurse it back to health. She enjoyed it. The rest of us found the exhibits very interesting. In addition, the Center does good... More

I could spend all of my time here. It was my main attraction upon visiting Eugene, OR. I will definitely revisit. It's a small park, but is very educational with great staff and is located in the beautiful Eugene forest. If you like animals and the outdoors, I suggest going to learn and experience being near these awesome animals. It's... More

Lots of really awesome raptors in clean and well maintained environments. These animals are healthy looking and seem happy. Most are rehabbed wounded animals and some simply can't survive on their own in the wild. Each has a personal story. Parking is not good and there are no rest rooms, only very unclean porta-johns that clearly are not emptied or... More

Sherri- I am so sorry if you visited on a day when the portable restrooms were in bad shape! I'm sure the warm weather we've been having makes them worse . I do assure you they are cleaned at least weekly, and in all honesty this is the first time we've ever had a complaint. Not that anyone loves them... More

We really enjoyed the raptor center. The staff was very nice and loved answering all our questions. We loved seeing all the birds of prey and reading their stories. We think it's wonderful what they're doing for these birds. All the birds that come in are sick or injured. The only down fall was there not a lot of parking,... More
