Educational and great place to visit if you have any interest in Hawks, Falcons and Raptors of any type. The Owls are amazing in fact all the birds are well kept, well labled and fun to watch. The handlers are extremely well informed and this is an educational experience for Adults and Kids. Go there, you will love it!

Wonderful variety of birds. Great for the whole family. Personnel very informative. Walking tour with hills. Not easy for disabled or elderly. Great hike trailhead across the street.

This is a fascinating and fun place to visit. Grandchildren were entranced by the amazing birds that are here. Because the birds feed on a great deal of greens, contributions of excess from your gardens (squash, lettuce, tomatoes, etc) are welcome.

This is a place that tells both about raptors and specific stories about the captive raptors that led to their being placed at the raptor center. It is well worth the price of admission.

Staff and volunteers truly show a passion for raptors and returning them to the wild. Stories of each were on each enclosure. Note: built on incline. If you have mobility challenges bring a strong arm to hang onto.

Great center. A real benefit to the community. Adults and kids alike loved it. We all liked that you learned not only about the species of the birds but also the individual story of how each bird ended up at the educational center. A good 35 Falcons, Eagles, and other raptor varieties. Not to forget the owls which were so... More

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.
