A close up view of living endangered eagles, buzzards, hawks and owls boardering an environment set aside for local birds of prey habitat. Live demonstrations, up close and on the lawn in some cases.

This place was WAY more fun than I expected. You can get really close to several of the birds they host there. I would highly recommend the tour of the Falconry exhibit as well as the informative sessions they have. You'll learn a lot!

Compared to many places, this is small. It sounds like from the talk that it holds many more birds than are on show. It fills maybe 90-120mins at best. That said the big birds they have are impressive and it is a charity run organisation,...More

This center was originally for falcons to help their decreasing numbers. It spread to condors, owls, hawks, etc. Birds that hunt 'meat' to live are showcased here. The location itself is beautiful, views forever. Discount for senior citizens. The 'shows' are very interesting, up close...More

The last I knew it was not open on Mondays. However, other days it is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. They have tours and live bird showings scheduled as well as providing the freedom to look around on your own.
