WOW! Seeing the eagles, owls, hawks and other raptors up close and personal. Learning about rehabilitation and more. Listening to the docents and being about to walk around the habitats outside and inside was incredible. Enjoyed our tour here a lot.

Great facility to take care of the injured wildlife. The Bald Eagles and other raptors are treated here before being let back into the wild. Great place to learn about the rescues.

Yes HAL runs a tour to the Raptor Centre. Don't know if the bus will accommodate you. We walked up to the centre but would not advise you to do that
