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!

My two year old daughter LOVES the birds! It's especially fun when a volunteer takes one of the raptors out for training. The people are always very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. We have many owl decorations in my daughters room because CRC helped make "owl" one of her first words!

The work done here is vital. It is amazing to see these birds of pray up close. They even take some out and allow them to do show off a little. Great for children both to learn and enjoy seeing these amazing creatures. The price is very affordable too!

This place is a treat for getting to learn about and see all types of raptors and a few other birds. I volunteered there back in college, and I loved it!

So glad to see these amazing birds are being rehabbed (in most cases). Worth seeing up-close. NOT a zoo. Great for kids.

What could be more inspiring than to get up-close and personal with hawks, owls and other raptors. Don't miss this one.
