Thank you for your insight. We do have bird presentations and visits to our Archives of Falconry throughout the day, along with docents and volunteers to answer questions. We are a conservation and education facility, so we have just enough raptors for educational purposes. We...More

These birds are well-taken care of by people who truly care about them. It is so interesting to see them up close and learn about our Idaho birds. You don't have to be a kid to go see them.

It was a hot day, so didn't stay too long. There are shade trees at the actual center, and most of the attractions are inside, so don't be scared away when you drive in the gates and just see dead grass. They have some beautiful...More

This isn't a zoo. This is a world center. These folks understand raptors and work successfully to return their populations to sustainable levels. They did it with peregrine falcons. They're doing it with condors. Birds come first. One of the prices they pay to do...More
