While a bit off the beaten path, this place is a great way to spend a couple of hours seeing some of natures best airborne predators. Situated in the middle of the woods on a bit of a hillside, these birds were all in rather large pens and all have been rescued. One thing I really enjoyed was the personal... More

Raptors are Hawks and Ospreys and Eagles and others who use their talons to dominate smaller prey. Cascade rescues injured birds and tries to repair them. It cannot always equip them to return to the wild. What you will see in cages are birds, looking quite normal, either being prepared for their freedom or taken care of when a return... More

Have traveled all over the U.S. and been to many nature exhibits and zoos. Cascade Raptor Center is not only unique but a haven for birds that have no place else to go, or need a temporary place to heal. The staff and volunteers are dedicated and knowledgeable, as well as friendly and patient. We have donated to support two... More

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
