The Cascades Raptor Center was a fun afternoon stop. There are some amazing birds to view and the information about how the birds got to the Center were interesting. Definitely worth a couple of hours!

Spent a couple hours here with our young grandchildren while visiting in Eugene. A very interesting center for kids and adults. We were lucky enough to time our visit around the afternoon feeding,which we all enjoyed and were able to ask questions of the employees/keepers.

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.
