I spent a quiet couple of hours here - a little over an hour on a personal tour and then another photographing and watching the birds. All of the birds on display are either human-imprinted or permanently injured and some are also used for educational trips to schools. (The birds that are releasable are kept out away from humans to... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very fun and educational visit to the Cascade Raptor Center. We were impressed by the care and compassion with which the birds were treated by the staff. There were also occasional informative talks conducted by staff members along the tour which provided insight on both the natural characteristics of the raptors and a story... More

The Cascades Raptor Center does great work rehabilitating and releasing raptors. The ones kept in large cages are not capable of surviving in the wild and serve the CRC's educational mission. The staff are quite knowledgeable and eager to talk about the birds. CRC has been slowly expanding to accommodate the birds and growing interest in the their work with... More

The Cascade Raptor Center is a Eugene, Oregon non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and recovery of native raptor species. Most of the work of the center is unseen by visitors. They treat (and most often release) hundreds of sick, injured or orphaned birds of prey. The public never see this part of the center. The permanent residents that visitors... More

Absolutely worth seeing! You get to be right up close and never get a chance to see them stare at you! Some even want to entertain you. One clearly loves his blue tennis ball. The hardest part for me was seeing dead mice that where half eaten by the birds. Yuck! Beyond that.... don't miss this place and your kids... More

Our lodging wasn't too far from the raptor center so we gave it a shot. Low key, simple, no big stadium show, just an up close look at more than 30 varieties of birds of prey from small kestrels to huge eagles and owls. The back story for each bird is printed on each enclosure,which gives history and personality to... More

No interaction with the birds, you just simply watch them perched in their cages. Parking is not great and the employees act like you are an inconvenience instead of a guest. I wouldn't go back and I wouldn't recommend to my friends.

We came during an overcast summer day, and we enjoyed a nice leisurely visit with the birds. Staff was nice, crowds were small, place was clean. It's not a touristy place but an actual rehab place with birds on display. I would have liked some close up time with birds and the handlers. But otherwise a nice relaxing visit with... More
