Interesting place to visit. Lots of reading. It would do better if guides had some more interactions and explained some things to the kids. A little pricy

Thanks for your feedback! We do normally have more interactions, but a combination of volunteer Spring break vacations, and staff family and personal illness led to a significant staff shortage on the Sunday you were here. We apologize and hope you'll come again.

Finally got to Cascade Raptor Center, well worth the trip. So much to see and learn at this amazing place. I love that you can adopt a bird for a reasonable price. Definitely will return on future trips to Eugene.

A self-guided walking tour. For only $9 you get to see and learn about these beautiful Raptors, their place in the ecosystem, and their personal stories. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I'm afraid of birds but a little less scared of them now.

This place does amazing work for the injured raptors that reside here. It also provides informative information about the different types of raptors and how they came to live there. Cute gift shop with friendly volunteers too!

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.
