A visit to the Raptor Center lets you view eagles, owls, and others up close. Short tour, worth a stop if you are out and about.

The Raptor Center is a local treasure. I love seeing these majestic birds up close, and knowing that this facility is available to save them and educate others to do the same.

Hello, and thank you for your question! We assume you are asking about the weekend public program? It is $5.50 for students and seniors, and $8.00 for adults.
