My kids love coming here-small and not a lot to see but neat anyway. Good little bike ride to get there and learning experience once there.

This is a diamond in the rough. Well it is not rough at all. Lovely setting and has great exhibits. Staff is very knowledgable.

Many people miss this place during their visits to busy Sunriver. This is unfortunate because the staff is quite knowledgeable, the birds are impressive and the setting, gorgeous. Well worth the stop to get to know Central Oregon better!

A smaller but really nice nature center with trails. We were treated to an interesting presentation of an owl and walked around the center. It would be good for kids younger than ours but was still enjoyable.

This is a great place for adults and children alike. Inside are artifacts from around the area. Lots of hands on for kids. Outside are birds of prey up close. It is a beautiful spot.

This is basically just a tiny little loop trail one can walk in 5 minutes, a few picnic tables, and a handful of raptors in cages. That's all you get for the admission charge, which was $4 per person, I think. There is a gift...More

We have been here a few times just to check it out. The exhibits are OK and the work they do with injured wildlife is commendable. It was not all that entertaining or informative for me as an adult, but when we took the Grandkids...More
