This is an amazing facility with heart and soul. Not to be missed if you care for real life, dedication and education into raptors and their relationship to the planet.

Fun place for families with kids of all ages. Outdoor location with lots of trees, so it's a good idea to check the weather before going. We went on a drizzly day and it was still doable.

We visited the Cascades Raptor Center while in Eugene. They had an amazing selection of raptors to view. The enclosures were very nice and the setting up in the woods was great. Definitely something you should check out if in Eugene.

I loved the setting and seeing these birds; most are rescued (often from severe injuries) and brought to the center for care as well as their education program.

Cannot say enough good things about this place. If you expect the raptors to do "tricks" then this is not the place for you. But, if you want to get a close-up look at many species of owls, hawks, falcons, eagles, and even a crow...More

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.
