We had a great visit. This included reading the stories of why each bird was there. We were lucky enough to see a goshawk being trained. This allowed for some good photos.

I am sorry you feel our admission fees are steep; we have priced them very carefully and find they are the cheapest in the state for a comparable wildlife experience, by far. We do have free passes available at all the county libraries for visitors...More

The birds are beautiful and it's nice that they are rescued birds rather than zoo type birds. The staff seem to really care about them and are very patient in answering questions. The center is not very big, but it looked like they were expanding.

Absolutly the best place to keep kids excited. I recommend parking across the road and climbing the driveway. When you do you will see why. Facinating place for adults as well as kids.

The cages are large. Photos are possible. Sometimes the staff have a bird out for show and tell. You should check their web site for 'show times'. The center is well worth the vidit.
