We always love visiting the Cascades Raptor Center and see all the great work they are doing to help injured and endangered raptors. Always clean, informative and educational on every visit.

No interaction with the birds, you just simply watch them perched in their cages. Parking is not great and the employees act like you are an inconvenience instead of a guest. I wouldn't go back and I wouldn't recommend to my friends.

Very cool bird rehab center. A relative gave a donation in our names for Xmas, so this was a chance to see the "named bird" that was listed on card. Teens liked visit.

I absolutely love this place! Being face to face with some of North America's fiercest birds in quite an experience! Great place for a date!

Is the center good for taking pictures or are all the birds caged making photos impossible?

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.
