  • I think that it is a place dedicated to the very big fans of owls, owls and Raptors. The place is run by volunteers and for that, I am very appreciative of what they do to the animals. The lady who greeted us at the entrance was very nice and we were able to chat with her Center, animals. On the other hand, the Center is a bit small. I would like to welcome the work being done by the staff who is in charge of the Center!

  • This was a great trip for an hour or more plus you go by Spenser Butte. Cascades is a fabulous center and really care about these birds of prey. You can see it by their interaction with them and by st...  more »
  • We took our time walking through the exhibit. There's a lot to learn, to read, to watch. Nice that there are benches to sit and gaze and different types of "terrain" to walk around. Be careful of the ...  more »

  • Come to Beauty, Peace and Kindness. Wow! This is such a beautiful place! Not just because of the setting on the edge of a forest, or the natural looking enclosures, or even the stellar condition of the magnificent birds within. The main beauty here is the heart of respect and reverence for the creation of spectacular creatures. Worth every cent of admission and, in fact, come ready to make an additional donation. Your heart will be blessed if you can do so.
  • Great spot to visit and learn about the birds of prey. Was very interesting and informative. Lots of information about the birds and how they came to be there. We didn't get to see the presentation but it was still fun. Only drawback was hard to get good shots of the birds through the grating, but that's a small price to pay to see them. Hopefully it helps people be more aware of their impact on the wildlife and finding wounded animals and taking them where someone can help without impacting their ability to be released back into the wild.
  • Loved it! All the birds have a plaque with their name and story. We took our 4 year old and 2 week old with us and great grandpa. We all had a wonderful time and will be back next time we are in Eugene. Hope to see them back in Sweet Home soon for another presentation at the library ♡
  • A MUST SEE if you're in Eugene. Family friendly attraction where you get to see magnificent, beautiful birds and learn more about them and their lives. Hopefully you'll be lucky enough to show up at a time when a handler comes to feed them, because then you'll get to see how they interact with humans and how they're trained--totally fascinating. Entry prices are fair, and surprisingly, gift shop items are reasonably priced as well. It IS a bit difficult to get to by bus, but well worth the trip.
  • A really lovely place for people of all ages to enjoy nature. The birds have great large enclosures that still allow you to witness them in all of their glory. I was in awe at the size of these beautiful creatures and was able to see how they behave in their habitats. There is also a nice gift shop with various bird-related trinkets. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable, I would recommend this as a stop for anybody in the area who loves nature.
