This is an amazing facility with heart and soul. Not to be missed if you care for real life, dedication and education into raptors and their relationship to the planet.

Most of the birds are there because they need to be taken care of, so it is so nice to know that there is this place and the birds are doing pretty nicely there. It is quite a big collection and so many are just predatory beautiful. We also got a small lecture and got to know closer one of... More

Fun place for families with kids of all ages. Outdoor location with lots of trees, so it's a good idea to check the weather before going. We went on a drizzly day and it was still doable.

The raptor center is a great place to visit with children and guests. The birds are beautiful and the center does its best to make them comfortable and healthy. The information offered is interesting and provides opportunities for discussions and idea sharing.. We went with our grandchildren and the visit sparked lively conversations and lots of idea about how to... More

This place is amazing. The birds are truly majestic. We experienced feeding time with some of the big birds. WOW is all I can say. My kids' eyes were wide open! Definitely an experience we all will not soon forget. We all picked 'our bird' as we left and remarked all the way home how amazing the trip was. I... More

We visited the Cascades Raptor Center while in Eugene. They had an amazing selection of raptors to view. The enclosures were very nice and the setting up in the woods was great. Definitely something you should check out if in Eugene.

I loved the setting and seeing these birds; most are rescued (often from severe injuries) and brought to the center for care as well as their education program.

I can't give this 5-star only because it is such a diamond in the rough and as a visitor I noticed a few things I wished had been done. Yes, it IS a bit tough to park and there are a couple spots that are a bit tough to walk. I would not recommend this for anyone infirm or using... More

Cannot say enough good things about this place. If you expect the raptors to do "tricks" then this is not the place for you. But, if you want to get a close-up look at many species of owls, hawks, falcons, eagles, and even a crow then this is the place to go (There were other species but I can't remember... More

This is a wonderful place to get up close and personal with raptors. The staff were very helpful and full of information about the birds. The birds themselves were beautiful and there were many different kinds to see. This is a must-visit if you're in the area!
