  • I was really impressed with this place. Each bird's story was viewable on their enclosure. The enclosures were large and in great condition. The birds were in good condition and were kept out of the r...  more »
  • There were roughly 30 birds on display for $9 / adult. We were able to see every single bird on display. We didn't catch any training sessions, but this is a great place to check out for the price. Ea...  more »
  • This is a small gem for anyone who loves raptors. The setting is lovely, tucked into the forest in the south hills of Eugene. Go to the office first to pay and get a map and browse the small gift shop...  more »

  • nice to see that there is a place that rehabs them. fairly nice variety of them in a pretty location. even though it was rainy it was interesting and the birds seemed pretty content. although you cannot see the ones that are there for rehab and release back to the wild its nice to know your entry fee is going for a good cause
  • We wanted to see some birds in cages. That's what we got. They have a large variety of Hawks, Owls, & Eagles. Since this is a rescue type operation most birds on display were permanently injured in some way and would not be returning to the wild. It didn't stop us from enjoying these majestic birds. There's about 30 birds of varying types. We liked the Red Tailed Hawks the best (such personality). The parking lot is small, gravel/dirt and on a steep hill.We came on a rainy day and were able to make it up in our minivan. They had umbrellas for us to use. It's about an hour of viewing (don't let your kids rush through or you'll be done in 10 minutes).
  • Awesome experience with tons of birds of prey. The bald eagles are massive and you can get within a couple feet of them. There are also some amazing owls, falcons, hawks, bald eagles, gold eagles, and tons more.
  • Beautiful specimens of raptors. We saw some of them feeding and others sang for us and yet others would just show off. Of course the owls were quiet being it was day time. Overall a great experience.
  • Great place for a short or longer visit, 2-3 hours to see and experience everything. Memberships very worth while for families with kids. Park in their lot or down at the nearby trailhead.
