A very cool caged bird habitat with dozens of previously orphaned or injured raptors that have been saved from predators. Make sure to take in a lecture by one of the dedicated staff.

Wonderful place to bring the kids, but is still fun for adults. The raptors are amazing to look at and learn about.

Excellent place for kids. Vultures, owls, eagles - in large clean flight cages. Birds that would not be releasable due to injuries are given a second chance here. Educational and fun - my twin 5 year old grandsons loved the human sized birds nest, and...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.
