I was happy to catch them prior to their move. There are so many interesting birds here, very worth while to see them such as toucans. Look for them in Florida soon. Nice to see people care about parrot welfare. Nice selection of toys if you have a bird.

This was a very educated and heartwarming facility. I had no idea that a bird was capable of the things I witnessed here. We have two young girls and they had a great time watching how the birds reacted to the volunteer. They deal with nearly extinct birds in amazing fashion. Definitely a diamond in the ruff.

We love visiting the Black Hills Parrot Welfare & Education Center in Belle Fourche, SD. They do a fantastic job of caring, loving and rehabilitating birds that have had really bad times, ones that are near extinction or very rare and ones that are more common. On each visit the Owner has given us a tour of the facility and... More

Always a treat to visit BH Parrot Welfare & Education Center! I enjoy bringing newcomers to visit with me. Informative tours, friendly staff and volunteers, and if you are lucky a conversation with my favorite species the African grey. A delight for all ages, a must see in Belle Fourche, SD.

Went 10/11/14 and had a wonderful personal tour by the owner. He is extremely knowledgeable of the birds in his care and you can see how much he loves the birds in his care and they love him. They've done some wonderful work with some horribly abused birds as well as rehabilitating birds from other facilities. My favorite part was... More

Loved our visit there. Our daughter lives hear it and we took our grand daughter who just can't get enough of going . We were so impressed and learned so much on the personal tour.

Glad you enjoyed your visit. We seldom get enough donations to even meet our very conservative care budget. While we would like to make many improvements to the facility for visitors, the birds care, diet and health must come first, however we do accept donations that are earmarked for capital improvement projects from past visitors that believe in our work.

I wasn't able to visit in June 2013 because the family simply ran out of time with all there is to see in South Dakota. But, I was fortunate this time because I was running a half marathon in Belle Fourche on the 19th of September. What a great visit. As an owner of 5 conures of varying types and... More
