Three generations of my family went and we all thoroughly enjoyed getting to see these beautiful birds up close. The staff brought birds out for educational talks, allowing us to see them and ask questions. I especially liked the turkey vulture who seemed to play peekaboo with me. Each bird had an interesting and compelling survival story.

A baby owl fell down the chimney into our wood stove...just cool coals at time. We took it to Cascades raptor center where they care of hurt birds till they can be released.

My kids love doing new activities and especially love animals. Once us Oregonians have exhausted Wildlife Safari and The Oregon Zoo, maybe even Omsi, it was time to look around. Never even had given CRC a look and decided to go one rainy Sunday. It's a neat place....Beautiful creatures, feel like your "fee" goes to a worthy cause as you... More

I'm not sure where else you can find this diversity of raptors in one place, and while the birds are "captive", this is only because they are recuperating from injury or they can't be returned to the wild because of physical problems they couldn't otherwise survive with. But here they contribute a great service to wild raptors by helping educate... More

We had actually never heard about this facility and were only just looking for a way to avoid heading home when we found Cascades Raptor Center on TripAdvisor! So glad we did!! When we pulled up it was obvious that this is not a huge location but the facility was such a pleasant surprise. We started in the visitors center... More

This is a wonderful place - the birds all seem well-cared for, and I loved the personalized stories each one had on their habitats, telling not only how they got there, but also nice touches about each one's personality that gave the impression that the staff really paid attention to them as individuals. The birds are beautiful and impressive, and... More

Some things just deserve special recognition and this is one of those places. The work they do in wildlife rehabilitation is extraordinary. Folks work tirelessly and there is no nicer person on the planet than the founder, Louise. She deserves all our support for her efforts. This is a place to take your kids and educate them about what it... More

We went after the ice storm and they were reopened. Enjoyable exhibits of a variety of raptors. Was cold but it's winter!

Up in the mountains south of Eugene. The raptors are in large aviary especially and plenty of information is displayed with each. The center involves some walking up and down the hills, so not the easiest place to maneuver with wheelchair or walker. Definitely worth at least one visit!
