Boise Scavenger Hunt Adventure

3 reviews
Instead of a traditional sightseeing tour, get to know Boise in a unique way with a scavenger hunt. The city becomes a game board on this walking tour with an Amazing Race–style twist where you'll learn a bit of local history and discover both popular and lesser-known sights as you solve clues and tackle challenges to complete the adventure. Please note, the price is per-person but you must book with your team in order to be part of the same hunt.
US$20.60 per adult

We visited on April 1, 2021 with our four children. We made an appointment beforehand online and were there for the 90 min. We saw several birds outside then had a presentation inside with a very informative presenter. We were so excited to see so many rare birds that we wouldn’t normally be able to see. After the presentation we were able to explore additional birds and information about them indoors. At the end we visited the gift shop. So glad we went!

The World Center for Birds of Prey is a wonderful place to visit. There is so much information to absorb, and it's important the people go visit so we can start to understand our relationship with these beautiful creatures. They need us and we need them! I can't wait to see how the facilities evolve with their expansion coming soon. Can't wait to go back - 2 hours went by fast!

We are so grateful that the World Center for Birds of Prey has been able to reopen. We visited yesterday with our six year old granddaughter, who is driven by all things wild. We have been members for some years, but unable to visit for some time. From the moment we entered the Center, the staff and docents made us feel welcome and appreciated. During this "Covid Time" the number of daily visitors is limited, which gave us a wonderful opportunity to spend our time with the docents who enlightened us on the history and current activities of the Center and the Peregrine Foundation. They introduced us to all the birds--we learned so much. We met face-to-face with several of the education birds. Most impressive was Oliver, the quite beautiful Eagle Owl from Africa. What a handsome chap! We were delighted with all the improvements over the years--the outside Condor aviary, the new classroom, the renovation of the habitats inside and out, and so much more. Our granddaughter fell in love with Sky, the Bald Eagle, and would have gladly camped for the rest of her vacation right in front of her home! What a blessing to Boise and the Treasure Valley this Center is. Its outreach is world wide, and is one of the organizations making a true difference in the understanding and preservation of the natural world. I would encourage everyone to be sure to visit, or, if you live locally, become a member and visit often. You will love the experience, and be able to enjoy wonderful privileges, like attending evening programs about the latest endeavors of the foundation and the development of the Center.

Birds of prey with their animated and calculating eyes and their intense focus are very fascinating. The reserve outside Boise offers visitors the perfect setting to absorb the traits of the birds. We went during Covid restrictions which gave us 1.5 hours entry and included 30 minutes of watching 3 individual birds one at a time flying to and from perches in an open air setting showing off their swooping skills. The helpful and informative staff were incredibly patient answering even the most mundane questions as though Einstein had asked them. Like people, the birds each have a story that was heartbreaking, funny and/or dramatic. After the live display, we wandered around looking at the other varieties of large birds. The exhibits were easy to read with just enough detail. We became so intrigued by the astounding birds that for the rest of our road trip as we passed every farm we would look at the telephone poles in the hopes of glimpsing a hawk scanning a field for mice.

This is the second time we've been there. The place is awesome. The staff are awesome. The birds... AWESOME!!! The birds are all there either because they were injured and cannot survive in the wild or they were raised by people and became imprinted to them (don't fear them) so they would likely be killed by unknowingly getting too close to people.
