  • My first trip here and its a wonderful place. From bald eagle to Barn owls. One word of warning, there is not much parking and you may have to park across the street and walk up the hill. For older and out of shape folks, its not the easiest of walks,
  • Amazing place with different raptors from around the country. Loved the bald eagle who took a bath in front of us. One thing that you need to watch out for is the driveway into the place which is a sudden turn off the main road and onto a one lane road up a hill.
  • Great display of rescued raptors. Enjoy being able to see these beauties as they are being rehabilitated and put back into wild whenever possible.
  • Such a wonderful experience seeing these awesome birds up close and personal.
  • Small but well maintained display cages, excellent educational information, and free ice cream (for the special program)!
