My daughter and I visited with all my grandchildren. Wonderful experience!! Loved how hands on and involved Ken encouraged them and even us to be (my daughter got to call the Harrison Hawk to her hand and feed her)! The kids fed fledglings and the vulture! Ken provided so much information on each of the birds we saw. I appreciated... More

We've been here several times! Once on a class field trip and another time to drop off an injured owl. Ken does amazing work with these birds and I would highly recommend scheduling a visit. He does take donations to care for the animals he helps!

Eagle Valley Raptor Center is a great destination, not just for those who love Birds of Prey, but for anybody wanting to experience something new and unique! Ken is not only knowledgeable about these beautiful birds, but he loves them! The experience is not only educational but enjoyable. I have now been to EVRC twice. Once as a group tour... More

I have experienced EVRC both at the facility tour in Cheney and at school programs. Ken is passionate and an expert on these amazing eagles , owls and hawks. The school program keeps kids attention and teaches them the importance of wildlife to our environment. Donations help keep the rehabilitation going for these amazing eagles and owls.

This is not a field trip I would recommend for younger chidren. The two older children in our group loved the two hour presentation. Our tour was given by Ken. After the tour he personally requested that we put an honest rating on Trip Advisor. We left a sizable donation for our small ground as well. The facility is spectacular,... More

I have visited the Eagle Valley Raptor Center and enjoyed it very much and learned alot about birds that I didn't know. Ken not only rescues hurt Raptors, but rehabilitates them and returns them to the wild if they are releasable. If they are not he either keeps them and uses them to educate the public or he looks for... More

I've been to EVRC twice now and follow their great efforts on Facebook. The good work that is performed there is awe inspiring! To see some of these raptors up close and personal is a chance in a lifetime for most people. Ken Lockwood and his volunteers do an amazing job of being hospitable and make you feel welcomed. Great... More

If you are in Kansas, you owe it to yourself to make the trip to Eagle Valley Raptor Center. It is an experience you and your children will never forget.
