Wonderful and educational, any season worth it to visit. Caretakers will walk you through and explain the characteristics of each bird, why they are at the center, etc.

This was a magical visit to see wild birds being saved. You can't get too close, but you can see them, and read a lot of wonderful stories about them. I am going to be a regular here!

Not a very large place, but a pleasant way to spend the afternoon. The walking path through the grounds is easy and well laid out. The enclosures let you get pretty close to the birds. The resident wildlife outside of the enclosures (squirrels and chickadees)...More

The Raptor Center rehabilitates injured birds. Approximately 40 are housed in enclosures along a pathway including eagles, owls, hawks and falcons. For the anti-zoo people: the caged birds have typically suffered wing or eye injuries or otherwise can’t survive in the wild. The staff goes...More

The cages are large. Photos are possible. Sometimes the staff have a bird out for show and tell. You should check their web site for 'show times'. The center is well worth the vidit.
