Get out of the theme park crowd and see what the outdoors has to offer. The center is run by big hearts, a group of volunteers who care and rehabilitate these birds. We have visited several times, and my children love it. The volunteers are all very friendly and offer a plethora of information. You get real close to these birds and truly get to see and enjoy the beauty these raptors have to offer.

You can have a leisurely visit that can last an hour, or bring a talkative school aged child and make it last three hours! Check out their website and see what the inside of a cage looks like with their live web cam-Eagle eyes on the environment! This is a must see for the outdoor enthusiast or the little future vet!

A great place to take the kids! Real birds not robots like at Disney. We live in the area and bring guests there. They love it.
Just today while walking some man stopped me and asked where it was...he was taking an injured hawk he found there. They care for injured birds.

We're sure it's been said before, but this is a true hidden gem for the Central Florida area. It truly makes me proud to have this facility in my town. These birds are well taken care of, clean enclosures, staff & volunteers truly care about this place. Love the fact that the guidebook you are given to use has the backstory on each bird!!! Interesting, educational, & an absolute bargain at $5.00 per person. Do yourself a favor & make the time to visit !!!

Went a couple of years ago. It's a very cool place to see raptors up close. Gotta like the work they do here to rehabilitate birds and release them back into the wild (when/if they are healthy enough to go back). Especially great to take children.

This is a top notch bird of prey rescue center operated by the Audubon Society. Admission is $5 per adult and $4 for kids under 12; under 4 are free. Center is nestled between Maitland and Eatonville in a residential outcrop. Don't let the area fool you though. The center is well insulated from the outside world and sits on the banks of Lake Sybellia.

When you come in you are immediately greeted by live bald eagles and they're huge and very much aware of your presence. During your visit, you'll see hawks, falcons, owls, and more. Some are in cages and some are just a few feet from you. The birds are so majestic and much more than you'd see on TV.

If you like animals, this place is a must. Bring a camera. The whole visit takes about an hour but it will be one of the most rewarding single hours of your life.
