This place totally rekindled my love for birds. There are a wide variety of hawks and owls, each with their name and story posted on their cage. The animals on display are only those who have been previously humanized. The birds who still have hope of being released are held away from the public, as well those who are skittish... More

Nestled up against the hillside in Eugene, the Cascades Raptor Center is a hidden gem. They have an aviary of around 25 permenant resident raptors, Most of the birds are native to the region and were brought in to be rehabilitated, but could not be released back to the wild for various reasons. There are also a few non-natives that... More

The Cascades Raptor Center south of Eugene Oregon is worth your while to visit. The Center relies on admissions and donations to feed the birds and pay the bills. Admission Fees: Adults - $8; Teens/Seniors - $7; Children under 12 - $5. No dogs are allowed because they upset the birds. The birds that are at the Center are on... More

This center gives people a chance to get up close to birds of prey that they normally may only ever see flying high overhead. They are pretty incredible creatures usually with big talons and wary penetrating eyes. Unfortunately, they are are there because they have been injured in some way that makes them either unfit for living in the wild... More

We attended with a group of special needs children as a field trip. It is beautifully kept and a wonderful resource for all types of special/rare birds. They were very accommodating and seemed genuinely happy to have us and our students.

The short drive to the Raptor center is nice, usually see a deer or two. Our family loves the center. There is so much to learn and see. We've been lucky to be able to witness feeding time, not for the faint of heart, but the kids love it. Definitely recommend to out of towners and local folks.

.. 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
