  • Wonderful experience. Knowledgeable staff and volunteers who are obviously passionate about rescuing/rehabilitating raptors. The CRC is in a pretty secluded spot so they can for the most part recover without the hustle and bustle of cars and other outside interference. You really get to see the beauty of these creatures up close and personal and occasionally see them out of their cages for live demonstrations. What a great cause and a fun trip! Would love to return when weather permits.
  • This is one of my favorite Oregon treasures. I've been about 4 times now and the staff here truly love what they do and are very enthusiastic about showing you these amazing creatures. I love the stories behind each bird. I wish each bird had about 10x the space they do, such amazingly majestic creatures, need more space. (Even though many can't fly.) Special treats are the vultures and Asian Owl(?) two creatures you can see up close and are just fascinating to watch in person.
  • Very educational. Friendly and caring staff. Enjoyed reading the stories about each bird and why they were there.
  • Very fun activity for all ages. Admission gets you access to all the birds on the tour path (maybe like 30+ birds) and there are staff/volunteers along the way to answer questions. They might even pull a bird out and show you. Our favorites were Dante, the golden eagle, and Celilo, the bald eagle. Definitely a great spot for bird lovers and normal folk alike :P
  • This facility helps rehabilitate wild birds. There are falcons, eagles and owls here. Admission is reasonable and you can also become a member which includes free admission.
