“A great place to visit in Boise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

While smaller than the name suggests, they have an important mission and do help all sorts of birds of prey. It's worth the trip to see the work that the do, and to see the view of the mountains from their hilltop.

“Learned a lot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

My boys (7 and 9-years old) and I spent 2 hours here one Saturday morning and had a really nice time. We attended a talk and got to meet a screech owl up close and personal - very cute! We also found a booklet and worked on a scavenger hunt which really kept my kids engaged and interested in the displays. A military discount would have been a nice added incentive to the place, but the woman working the front desk did pull out a coupon that she allowed us to use instead. This is a great place to spend a couple of hours while in Boise!

This is a great amenity for the Treasure Valley. We've taken several out-of-town guests and they've all given the Center rave reviews.

“A fantastic show not to miss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I went in October when they put on a Birds of Prey show with falcons, peregrines, and owls! The outdoor stadium is just the right size to see these magnificent birds up close and personal. The staff is so dedicated to the preservation of the species' worldwide, and the entire facility is certainly one of the most interesting and fascinating place for families.

“Great for the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Brought some friends here as we also had never been. So interesting and so much to learn about all the Birds of Prey... They have a few eagles, hawks, vultures on display and they do daily shows. The kids will really love this and so will the adults. Not to miss... plan on spending a couple of hours looking around and enjoying the tours!
