For those who admire birds of prey, this is a great stop. It is larger than we expected and the raptors were lovely. As a teacher, I would love to have this center's outreach team come for a school visit. The birds are great ambassadors.

Small place, beautifully maintained, large enclosures, you can just tell the raptors are treated supremely well here. They are all there because they are incapable of surviving in the wild either due to a physical limitation, or because they come from a situation where they...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.
