  • Not quite enough experience for $10 a head. The show was really good but the rest fell into the the same type of venue as every free nature center in the state. In other words geared for the elementary aged child. Adults are the ones funding these things, you would think there would be more of an offering that would speak to that level. Just a suggestion.
  • Excellent venue for learning about our national bird. Lots to look at. Educational seminars are offered throughout the day, where you can see live eagles at feeding time. The staff really knows their stuff, and their enthusiasm and concern for the eagles at the center is obvious. An "extra", even before arriving, is that, no matter from which direction you get there, you will see many eagles, both flying and sitting in trees along your route.
  • What a wonderful place to visit, and if you have kids, they will love it! The highlight of the visit was "Bucky" the very funny and knowledgeable instructor who gave a very enjoyable class! This by far was the worth the price of admission! Great work Bucky!
  • What a wonderful experience. Loved watching the presentation. The cute pregnant lady did an amazing job. She obviously loves her job. So captivating. I hung on her every word! Thank you for a great experience.
  • The short presentation we took advantage of watching was very interesting and entertaining. To see the Eagles up close is amazing. This is a great place with a great cause!
