This sanctuary for injured raptors is a treasure. Extremely well-managed and with a focus on education (they make trips to schools with raptors), this little nonprofit is an excellent example of what informed, ethical, and dedicated leadership and volunteers can accomplish. Don't miss this if you love wildlife and have children old enough to enjoy seeing presentations featuring raptors (I'd suggest ages 7 and up). Finding the Cascade Raptor Center can be a challenge, so make certain you have excellent directions. There is limited parking, so take that into account if they are having an event.

A wonderful experience for the whole family to learn more about our native raptors live and close up. Cascades Raptor Center rescues, rehabilitates sick or injured hawks, eagles, vultures and even ravens and crows and uses those that can not be released for release for public education. Don't confuse this place with a 'Bush Gardens' type show with tricks though. CRC isn't a circus act, they are a dedicated rescue group! Located in a beautiful, natural setting in up on the hill in beautiful Eugene, OR. Definitely worth a visit!
