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

Because I volunteer in wildlife rehab, this was a MUST stop. It is very nice; admission payment required. (It may seem high, but it all goes to the animals!) If I lived nearby, I would be a volunteer.

Very cool and totally unexpectedly excellent! We and our two teenage grandkids had a wonderful time at the Cascades Raptor Center yesterday morning. It was sad to learn of so many heartbreaking problems that brought these wonderful creatures to the center, but comforting to know how well they were being cared for. Volunteering may be in the offing.

A fantastic organization dedicated to rehabilitating raptors of all shapes and sizes. The raptor center has knowledgeable staff and opportunities for bird enthusiasts and photographers alike to see some of these beautiful birds in person.

It's a great place - the only reason we didn't give it 5 stars is that we were expecting more interaction with the staff. There was one official talk with a bird brought out, and we saw another staff member in one of the cages who was talking to visitors a little; the gift shop/office people were very friendly, but...
