You don't need a lot of time for a visit to the Leslie Science Center's Birds of Prey exhibit. It is fabulous to see owls, eagles and other raptors up close and personal. Good signage to describe what you're seeing.

Bring the kids to view local wildlife up close. All animals here were injured and from rehab but are unable to sustain themselves in the wild, which is why they're used for learning. Accessible to all, good parking and close to town. Nice programs for...More

LSC does an impressive job of educating the public about raptors though their exhibits (open to the public for free) and has beautiful hiking trails in the surrounding area. Worth a visit!
